A recently completed project of Steven Harris Architects: the subtly lavish conversion of 54 Bond Street (the landmarked former Bouwerie Lane Theater) into three loft residences, including a penthouse triplex with two kitchens (one is an entertaining space on the rooftop that opens to a landscaped deck).

N.B.: Just released, True Life, the firm's first monograph, showcases a range of residential work from the past 25 years.
