Steven Gambrel featured in Architectural Digest
"When designer Steven Gambrel visited a Manhattan couple's apartment on the Upper East Side for the first time, he was captivated by their 1912 building's Renaissance palazzo architecture—and by its rich history. The work of the venerable firm McKim, Mead & White, the 12-story limestone structure was commissioned by James T. Lee, a grandfather of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. Notably, it was conceived as the neighborhood's first luxury residential building, with supremely elegant units offering plentiful fireplaces, dependable wall safes, and other amenities intended to convince the upper class to abandon its mansions and townhouses for the novel convenience of apartment living."
