Glamorous Entrance into Vintage Apartment Home


Our south Minneapolis homeowners were expanding and remodeling their Park Avenue condo by combining three smaller units into one larger space in the legendary co-op near the American Swedish Institute. The 1930s building retained much of its Art Deco charm, and its stately grandeur inspired the homeowners’ personal style throughout their home renovations. 

The two original side-by-side entryways became a spacious foyer with a unique Brazilian cherry floor, outlined by black wedge wood and brass inset. The Art Deco sconces in the foyer set the mood in this glamorous space.

In the adjacent formal dining room, a floor of basket-weave oak and Brazilian cherry added to the distinctive setting for an elegant table beneath a 1930s French Deco Chandelier. The sunken ceiling was added and painted, in sync with the walls, a metallic silver to show off the room in all its splendor.
