Architectural Digest – linkinbio,ad100

The 1899 Manhattan residence that art aficionado Melissa Neumann and her family settled in might not have been an obvious fit for their collection of dynamic treasures, but Melissa says she and her husband just felt it “had a great energy.” They hired Zivkovic Connolly Architects to renovate and expand the property, lightening its Victorian feel with a skylit central staircase whose walls and landings serve as galleries that reveal themselves as you ascend. “You see these fragmented views, which is similar to the visual vocabulary of many of the artists,” says Melissa, “but there’s also a sense of openness.” This particulate landing reveals an early Basquiat painting, one of two the Neumanns bought from the artist in 1982.
