1st Avenue Apartment in New York by Mojo Stumer Associates

Friday, May 20th, 2016

Article source: Mojo Stumer Associates

This 7,000 square foot apartment on the Upper East Side is a project that represents true elegance and extensive high-end detailing but with a totally contemporary philosophy. The same atmosphere of a classically traditional apartment is expressed here from the viewpoint of Mojo Stumer’s modernism. This sprawling apartment, which started out with a combination of two 2,300 square foot apartments, is now the grouping of three apartments. We designed a smooth transition from each apartment by having a main gallery to join them together. The southeast facing apartment also has the option of being closed off and used as a guesthouse, as it contains its own full kitchen. The apartment is on the 82nd floor in a building with 10 foot high existing curtain wall provides our client with spectacular views of the city. It is a combination of a truly rich material palette of macassar ebony, stainless steel, high gloss lacquers, pure white stone flooring combined with dark marble trim and walnut insets. Mojo Stumer created a sophisticated interior with our material and furniture selections and, of course, the belief in modern design which helped to accomplish our goal.

Article source: Barker Freeman Design Office architects pllc

This 12 foot wide rowhouse for a family of four organizes life on four narrow but light-filled levels.  A new open switchback stair located at the center of the footprint sets up a dialogue between the spaces in the front, which preserve elements of the original detail of the late 19th century house and the rear, which includes an addition   with a full wall of storefront-system glass.

Lantern Ridge House in Kerhonkson, New York by Studio MM Architect

Thursday, April 28th, 2016

Article source: Studio MM Architect

Perched at the top of a wooded knoll in the Hudson Valley, the Lantern Ridge House accentuates mountain views while camouflaging itself in the densely forested environment. At night, the typically obscured house becomes a beacon for passing cars and a guiding light for our homeward-bound clients. The home is focused on a single gathering space through which the 2,200 SF structure becomes at once intimate and expansive, private and public. Oriented to face both sunrise and sunset, this hinge point is created by the convergence of two private wings that contain separated accommodations for our clients and their guests. A continuous wood ceiling shelters an exterior deck and the glass façade, which focuses expansive views, connects the clients with the immediate natural environment, and provides a consistently sunlit space.

Ithaca Guest House in New York by ikon.5 architects

Saturday, April 23rd, 2016

Article source: ikon.5 architects

Set in a bucolic residential neighborhood in Ithaca, New York, the simple zinc-metal and mahogany clad guest house rests upon an existing white-washed pool house foundation. The guest house is nestled across from an elegant whitewashed brick main house, complimented by a steel and wood pergola along its west edge, creating an intimate setting for an outdoor stone-terraced swimming pool court. The guest house cantilevers over the pool house to actively engage the main house while hovering above the existing pool.
