The Stealth Building in New York City by Work Architecture Company

Tuesday, May 22nd, 2018

Article source: Work Architecture Company

This residential development consists of a complete gut renovation and new construction behind one of New York’s most beautiful and oldest cast-iron facades. It required a careful approach to the blending of contemporary architecture with historic preservation. New York City’s Landmarks Commission required any rooftop addition to be invisible. The building, however, is located on a highly-visible corner with a low, two-story building across the street. This meant that the building’s roof was visible from almost three blocks away.

Magazzino Italian Art in Cold Spring, New York by MQ Architecture

Monday, May 14th, 2018

Article source: MQ Architecture

Magazzino Italian Art is a private initiative conceived by Nancy Olnick and Giorgio Spanu to house their collection of postwar Italian Art. The commission consisted in a full renovation of an existing 11,000 square-foot building and an additional 14,000 square feet of new construction. The existing L-shaped structure was erected in 1964 as a distribution center for dairy products and surrounded by loading docks and canopies. The new space needed a taller clearance, since some of the collection’s pieces were large, as well as highly controlled natural light.

Tree House in Amagansett, New York by STELLE LOMONT ROUHANI ARCHITECTS

Thursday, May 10th, 2018

Article source: STELLE LOMONT ROUHANI ARCHITECTS

An existing three story house perched in the trees was in dire need of repair. Breathtaking views from the roof deck made the decision to renovate rather than replace the structure an easy decision. An elevation horizontal addition is separated from the tower by the second story entrance, allowing each part to maintain it’s own identity. The space under the addition becomes the gateway to the pool and forest beyond.

There is a powerful urban dynamic between the streets of New York and the High Line, a layered civic realm that has developed over generations and in many iterations. 520 West 28th conveys this contextual relationship, applying new ideas and concepts to create the latest evolution of the site’s rich history.

The split levels of the design define varied living spaces and echoes the multiple layers of civic space on 28th Street and the High Line.

Little House. Big City. in Brooklyn, New York by Office of Architecture

Sunday, February 25th, 2018

Article source: Office of Architecture

The owners of this 11-foot-wide row house in Brooklyn were faced with a conundrum that many young families in New York eventually confront: the possibility of sacrificing location for space. After living in the house for eight years, the pair – an architect and jewelry designer – chose to expand in order to make room for their two growing children and remain in the Brooklyn neighborhood they had come to admire. The original 2-story, 1000SF home was completely gutted and extended to 4 levels by adding a bedroom suite above and digging a new urban mudroom below. The narrowness of the house required the design to make effective yet frugal use of space; every inch was important. Precise positioning of walls, doors, and windows was crucial as each floor was planned to serve a purpose. The lowest level serves as a new entry, storage, laundry, and mechanical area; the first floor is a continuous public space with living, dining, kitchen, and library opening to gardens in the front and back; the second contains two kids’ bedrooms along with a 2-sink bathroom; while the topmost level holds the master suite with a sleeping area, bathroom, balcony, and terrace. A slender steel stair repositioned on the south side party wall connects the house vertically and draws more light, air, and views into the building. Materials throughout the home are modest, natural, and unassuming: the rawness of unfinished steel and character-grade walnut is juxtaposed with the simple refinement of honed Carrara marble and matte ceramic hex tiles. The result is a home that is not just larger, but livelier – filled with the possibility to do more and stay longer in a city that requires its residents to be resourceful.

Art and Light Apartment in New York by Andrew Mikhael Architect

Friday, February 16th, 2018

Article source: Andrew Mikhael Architect 

Imagined as a gallery for the client’s artwork and lifestyle – colorful and social.

The apartment, in a building that was originally a factory, looked like a regular old rental when we started: home depot finishes, awkward walls, a tiny master bath and a powder room. My clients brightened it up with their colorful art collection, and I wanted to design a home for them that would inspire and freshen their palate and complement the artwork for their frequent home parties.

Old Orchard in East Hampton, New York by Blaze Makoid Architecture

Monday, January 15th, 2018

Article source: Blaze Makoid Architecture

One year after purchasing Old Orchard, the homeowners brought on Blaze Makoid to give the residence a complete redo. The original structure was configured as a linear, single story, glass and metal box with grade carved down to basement level at both ends. This provided below-grade access to a garage at one end and a small courtyard for two lower level bedrooms at the other.
