Back in Manhattan, Kracauer isn’t afraid to let a space’s original character lead his design. He’s currently finishing an apartment on Fifth Avenue, and restoring all the pre-war plaster, paneling, and moldings is taking a bit of time. To Enda McGowan, owner of New Tech. Co. and the apartment’s general contractor, the end results are worth the wait. “All the existing plaster, wood moldings, cabinetry, and doors were carefully restored to original condition, giving the entire apartment an elegant old world feel,” he says.
