Vanguard
For his new home, designer
S. Russell Groves streamlines an apartment
in a classic West Village
building without sacrificing any
of its old-world charm
TEXT BY NANCY T-T ASS
Pll OTOCRAPll Y BY SIMON UPTON
STYLED BY]. C. GARCI A- LAVI N
Manhattan has plent y of residential buildings where a well-known
minimalist designer like S. Russell Groves might feel at home. After
all, he cut his teeth in the offices of Richard Meier, whose name is
synonymous with stark architectural simplicity, and then with Peter
Marino, creator of stores for Louis Vuitton and Chanel. So why not
mosey over to one of Meier's glass towers on Perry Street and create
a pad for himself so coolly Zen it hurts?
But Groves's taste, it turns out, is more complex and diverse than
can be summed up in a shiny new white-on-white aerie. Instead, he
decided to bring his unique take on pared-down design to one of the
city's most vaunted addresses, a 1931 Bing & Bing edifice in the West
Village by the architect Emery Roth, who also designed the Central
Park landmarks the Eldorado and the Beresford.
Overlooking the small, triangular park at Abingdon Square, the
17-story building has amenities that few in its quaint, townhouse-
fi lled neighborhood can boast: protected views of lower Manhattan,
an elegant lobby, and meticulous white-glove service. On top of that,
it is a condominium, not a cooperative like most prewar New York
apar tments, so the ownership rules and regul ati ons are less onerous.
Little wonder that it is one of the cit y's most coveted pieces of r eal
estate. "You tell people you live here, and they just sigh," Groves says.
For most of the tasteful, well-heeled sorts who move into a buil ding
like his, renovation is a no-brainer: They lovingly r estore whatever
damage has been done to the gracious plaster walls, columns, and
ornamentation. Then they furni sh in classical prewar style-perhaps
some chint z, a bit of Chippendale, or a doll op of Art Deco. Yet while
Groves has indeed embraced hi s apartment's lovely bones, he has
done so with hi s own thoroughl y modern twist.
The small ent ry hall epitomizes his approach. While Groves ke pt
the coat closet and t raditi onal archway that leads into the li vi ng area,
he replaced the origina l closet door (inset panels, a heavy frame, and
a substantial knob) with a modern frameless door with a flush pull
In the dining room, the 1950s mahogany-and-brass
etagere is by Paul McCobb, the table is by Angelo
Mangiarotti, and the chairs are by lb Kofod-Larsen;
Groves left the dark-stained oak floors untouched.

that has no other visible hardware. The effect sends an immediate
signal: This home respects tradition but carefully reinterprets it.
Prewar apartment owner s often fetishize moldings. Groves, too,
wanted to honor that detail, but in his case, the original moldings
wer e too caked with paint to save. So he installed a less ornate but
still bold version. He kept the dark wood floors and the step-down
living room, but the fireplace is now travertine edged in silver nickel.
Like most apartments in the building, which was designed to appeal
to wealthy bachelors, Groves's is a one-bedroom. The proportions
of the living area and the bedroom are relatively generous, about
800 square feet, but the designer's eye for perfectly sized furnish-
ings makes them seem even more spacious-without sacrificing the
warmth that comes with prewar charm. He had many pieces custom
made, including the narrow console table a nd the sofa it sits behind.
"They had to be exactly the right dimensions," he says. "The sofa had
to be bigger than a love seat but smaller than something full-size, and
it's virtually impossible to find a table that slim."
In addition to the furniture made for the proj ect and some pieces
from the coll ection he designs under hi s name, his home also cele-
brates the work of midcentury masters, with items such as a huge
open-shelfuni t by Paul McCobb. In one corner, a Gerrit Rietveld zig-
zag chair stands out like an abstract slash against the white door of
a closet (a small, built-in work desk is hidden within); his gracefully
curving circul ar dining table, beneath the wi ndows with their stun-
ning views, was sculpted from marble.
Although Groves has made his reputat ion with restaurants and
hotels shorn of ornament-the seminal Tea Box Ca fe at the now-
defunct Takashimaya department store in New York Cit y, for

Groves designed the leather headboard and
armchair in the master bedroom; the bedside
tables are by Ecart, and the photographs are
by Chip Hooper, left, and Christopher Makos.

instance-his own home has smaller-scale elegance, with a sensual
melange of textures and fi ni shes. He is especially adept at mi xing
metals, emphasizing the individual char acter of the materials, from
steel to weathered brass, by placing the pieces in juxtaposition. "I
think you need to understand the underlying tones and know how
much is enough," he explains, "and when to take the edge off with
another finish." As minimalists go, he likes decorative lighting more
than most, as evidenced by the T. H. Robsjohn-Gibbings floor lamp
that dominates a corner of the living room: "I think lighting can be
both an incredible object and have tremendous use in the space." His
art, mostly big pieces that don' t create visual clutter, includes a C. Jere
wall sculpture and a Christopher Makos photograph.
The building's kitchens are petite-the structure was originally a n
"apartment hotel" with lavish food services on the ground floor-and
Graves's minimalism serves him well in such situations. The flat-
front, matte cabinets in off-white lacquer (no hardware, of course)
hang above an unusually narrow countertop with a custom-fabricated
rectangular stainless sink, both stri king in its angul arity and practi-
cal. "Totally worth it," he says.
Another ingenious touch: In the bathroom, he designed an almost-
invisibl e inset medici ne cabinet hidden behind a Jill Moser painting.
Although only a small , thi ck-framed antique mirror hangs above the
sink ("to satisfy guests' needs to see a mirror where they expect one"),
the cabinet door is full y mirrored on the inside and swings out over
the sink when Groves needs it for his morning ablutions.
"What people fa il to understand is that minimalism is a more elast ic
concept than they think," t he designer says. "You can have form and
function. It can be simple, but also very layered." •
