The very first YMCA in the U.S. got a face-lift, after “The Apartment” designers completely converted its 7,000 square foot, basketball court and running track into a 5-bedroom luxury apartment. The result is a behemoth-sized, minimalist, but colorfully-decorated residence, that still retains some of the elements of a basketball court (such as the court floors of the bedrooms and walk-in closet, a simple bathroom lined with small, white tiles, and a kitchen so big it could seat and feed two or more basketball teams).
Upon its realization, the “basketball apartment” was the setting for various tv shows, movies, and photo-shoots, including “Ugly Betty” and the film, “Music and Lyrics.” The designers reflected on the finished project by stating that they, “…Got everything we always wanted to try on client projects and never could. It was a design lab of sorts.”
