City Living is a contemporary garden on several levels imagined in a typical urban apartment block. While these dwellings are often cold and slightly forbidding in appearance they could easily be transformed with the addition of attractive green outdoor spaces for residents use with comfortable and sheltered seating areas surrounded by appealing planting and tranquil water features.

This renovation project, for a small apartment renovation in Manhattan came with numerous challenges. The greatest, perhaps was an extremely limited space. In any small space the walls and furnishings are close together— and, Gage / Clemenceau Architects capitalized on this fact by recognizing that if things are close together –they can be easily touched.

Our proposal aims to improve the social function and attractiveness of Duke of York square. The café is a bold and distinct formal proposition, framed by and reacting to the particular scale, proportion and environmental conditions of the historic site. Recessed landscaping extends the café’s seating into the surrounding pavement.

The project is the renovation of a pre-war townhouse on an historic block in Chelsea, NYC, focusing on the garden apartment. The garden duplex was originally dark and in disrepair: a cramped kitchen had inadequate windows facing the rear yard, the parlor level, with ornate molding, and etched glass, opened clumsily into a bedroom facing a rear yard.
