Featured Projects

loft

Greenwich Village Duplex

This renovation opened up the previous 1970’s “mini-loft” conversion of a landmarked historic cast iron building.  The standard developer galley kitchen was converted to an open kitchen with a center island.  The very standard bathroom was replaced with a custom sink, shower and soaking tub, all clad in mosaic glass tile. On the second floor of the duplex the guardrails were replaced with double sided book-shelves that are accessed by a rolling ladder from the living area below.  The existing ships ladder from the first to second floor was replaced with a semi “floating” stair of oak plank.

Bovina Residence

The main structure of the house is a timber frame from an nineteenth century barn that has been restored and raised on this new site.  The goal of this project was to build a house that would be energy efficient using materials that were both economical and environmentally conscious.  Due to the extremely cold winter weather conditions in the Catskills, insulating the house was a primary concern.  Other green materials in the home include reclaimed barn wood used for the floor and ceiling of the second floor, reclaimed wood stairs and bathroom vanity, and an on-demand hot water/boiler system. The exterior of the house is clad in black corrugated steel with a galvanized standing seam roof.

Upper Westside Brownstone

When the developer found this brownstone on the Upper Westside he immediately researched and found its potential for expansion. We were hired to maximize the existing brownstone and turn it from its current existence as 5 individual apartments into a large luxury single family home. The existing building was extended 16 feet into the rear yard and a new sixth story was added along with an occupied roof. The project was not a complete gut renovation, the goal was to keep the original character of the brownstone yet to update it with modern touches throughout the house.

Soho Loft

The client purchased a small but light filled one bedroom with great views of the water in a new building in Soho.  A long narrow hallway upon entering the unit coupled with the division of rooms made the apartment feel much smaller and blocked the view as well as light from flowing throughout the space.  The solution was to remove all of the walls, only adding back glass partitions where they were essential for privacy.  The resulting apartment has a spacious, light filled loft-like feel.

Union Square Loft

This renovation took a large open loft and adapted it for a growing family adding a bedroom, a bathroom and greatly enlarging the kitchen.  The front of the loft which contains the living room and dining room remains one space and is open to the kitchen.  The white on white kitchen was created with white glass upper cabinets, white lacquer lower cabinets, and blizzard caesarstone counters. The rear of the open loft was divided and separated off from the main space to create two bedrooms.

Artist's Loft

The owner’s of this apartment had been living in this large working artist’s loft in Tribeca since the 70’s when they occupied the vacated space that had previously been a factory warehouse.  Since then the space had been adapted for the husband and wife, both artists, to house their studios as well as living quarters for their growing family.   The major change was to take over spaces that were the children’s bedrooms and incorporate them in a new larger open living/kitchen space.  The previously enclosed kitchen was enlarged creating a long eat-in counter at the now opened wall that had divided off the living room.
