This project, located in Greenwich Village NYC, called for the complete renovation of a five-story, 1830’s townhouse. The historic Federal Style façade was preserved, and behind this masonry face we created a new world centered around light, space, openness, and revelation. New apertures through floors and ceilings channel natural light from the skylight down to the lowest level. A dramatic four-story wall of glass envelops the back of the house, joining the interior to nature through views out to the rear garden. On the roof, we created a new penthouse space that also connects to a garden.
