Greenwich Village Townhouse

An extensive remodel of a single-family, 4-storey townhouse for a busy family of three. We sought to create open and inviting spaces for informal entertainment, leisure and relaxation. Our design called for major structural modifications including the installation of new beams in floors and repositioning the staircase to increase the sense of open space. We dramatically increased natural light with new window openings along the rear wall and a large, walkable skylight over the Kitchen. With the design of the interiors, we created an urban-farmhouse aesthetic based on the owner’s fondness for European farmhouses. We implemented a palette of raw, industrial finishes that evoke warmth and texture, including reclaimed white oak flooring milled from barn beams, weathered barn siding for cabinetry and hand-textured plaster for walls and ceilings. We re-conceived unused outdoor terraces, creating urban gardens for year-round enjoyment.

Prospect Heights Townhouse

Full remodel of a Landmarked, 3-storey townhouse, preserving original detailing of its Queen-Anne structure. Aim was to strike a balance between a Mid-Century Modern and eclectic aesthetic. The Dining Room was reduced, accomodating a large Kitchen at the heart of the main floor, and creating an informal, continuous space from the Living Room to the Rear Yard. Storage was increased with long shelves and floor to ceiling cabinetry. On the upper floor the skylight openings were enlarged to maximize the natural light for the sleeping quarters and 2 bathrooms. Finishes were selected on a tight budget, including field-painted face-frame cabinetry, white subway tile and quartz countertops.

Chelsea Loft

Careful modifications to an existing 1,700 sf loft in a former industrial building with high ceilings, including a new Kitchen, Master Bathroom and utility facilities. Aim was to improve spatial flow and increase natural light, ventilation and storage. The Kitchen was moved from a dark corner and enlarged. Living and Dining areas were opened up by removing an existing wall that separated them. Natural light was increased by enlarging 2 window openings and installing French doors to the Rear Terrace. New built-ins are finished in white, high-gloss lacquer and rift-cut white oak, lending a modern appeal and increasing storage. Glass railings and adjustable partitions create a sound barrier between spaces without sacrificing light and air.

Cobble Hill Apartment

A young family sought to increase their Kitchen storage space, as well as replace their Powder Room door. A new Pantry was realized by filling an existing void with a stylish, compact built-in unit with a vertical configuration, covered by a sliding door, creating flexibility without sacrificing floor space. The Powder Room hinged door was replaced with a new, modern version with horizontal reveals, frosted glass window and stainless steel hardware; materials that met the budget and harmonize with the eclectic character of the house.

Park Slope Apartment

Complete remodel of a 2-Bedroom railroad apartment Bathroom. Being the only Bathroom in the apartment and having no windows, we gutted the existing space down to the studs, slightly enlarging the room to allow for a more open and efficient layout. An operable window was inserted with frosted glass into an existing light shaft, providing natural light and ventilation. A palette of bright white subway tile in a running bond pattern, black pencil liner accents, white hexagonal floor tile and polished chrome fixtures evoke a classic sensibility.

Prospect Heights Apartment

Two-phase interior remodel of a cosmetic Bathroom renovation and custom Closet. Objectives were to maximize storage space and update finishes. With the Closet, a minimalist aesthetic was created that blends with the existing character of the apartment with large, paneled doors that are painted the same color as the surrounding walls, with concealed hinges. The Closet replaces an existing built-in and dramatically increases storage space. In the Bathroom, a new wall-hung vanity features a white field-painted exterior, white oak interior, calacatta marble counter top and brushed nickel faucet. A matching white box with ventilation slots covers the existing steam pipe.
