Townhouse, West Village NYC
What the clients liked most about this 3,000 square foot townhouse when they purchased it was its history and potential as a home. At the time, the house itself was in complete disrepair, and any original details had been stripped away. We undertook a complete renovation from structural stabilization and digging out the Basement, to installing a full new mechanical system, electrical and plumbing, reconfiguration of rooms on the floors, new wood floors, and stairway, to the numerous custom wood and stone details throughout. The clients asked that the construction techniques be as true as possible to building methods of the time of original construction, including using solid wood and wood joinery with as little steel as possible. Simple Greek Revival detailing typical to late 19th Century New York townhouses is woven together with inspiration from colonial homes and Paris, France and integrated into a whole.
