East Midtown New York, Brownstone Renovation

The existing townhouse had been converted to apartments and commercial offices. The renovation included restoring the single family residence and adding an elevator to accommodate a wheelchair. The design inserts a minimalist core into a traditional building shell. At the garden level, the kitchen and family room opens to the backyard through an operable glass wall.

Interior renovation, restoration of facade and new elevator.
Original building: c. 1854
