WEST VILLAGE TOWNHOUSE
New York, NY
Located in historic Greenwich Village, this extensive reconstruction of a 1840s townhouse fuses past and present into a new, sophisticated 4,000 square foot home. The project is also the first townhouse to earn a LEED for Homes Gold rating in downtown Manhattan. Striking a balance between the historic and the modern guides all aspects of design in this reinvigorated Greek Revival townhouse.
Steel and glass windows line the basement and parlor floors’ South facades, drawing in natural light and air from the garden. Daylight is also funneled through the home via a skylight-topped 4-story open staircase. Industrial details of structural steel and exposed manually-geared hardware operate a pivoting glass and steel penthouse garret.
