TRIBECA NEW YORK N. MOORE STREET DUPLEX by Barker Freeman Design Office

Sunday, September 11th, 2016

Article source: Barker Freeman Design Office 

In this project, two apartments on the 10th and 11th floors of a condo conversion in Tribeca were combined vertically to create a duplex that functioned like a house, with breathtaking north- and east-facing views of the midtown skyline. The owners’ original apartment on the 11th floor became an open living room/kitchen/dining room space with a separate office and family room. The material palette is light and reflective with a variety of neutral textures inserted as focal points. High-gloss lacquered kitchen cabinets reflect the northern light and views into the space. The maple floors throughout were bleached to bring them out as a light textured ground to unify the living spaces. At the entry, two walls at right angles were painted a steel gray to provide depth and focus to the living space. At the stair, a double-height wall of rough-cut tile provides visual interest and sectional continuity between the floors. The stairs were conceived as floating horizontal planes captured between glass surfaces and supported along a center steel spinal stringer. The landing incorporates a bench that perfectly frames a view of the Empire State Building through the adjacent window. The lower level was partitioned off to maximize functionality and privacy. The bathrooms are grouped against the building core, and the central hallway leads to an eggplant-hued plane that redirects the path toward the master suite on one side and a light-filled corner playroom on the other, from which the two children’s bedrooms can be accessed.

Modern Beach house in New York by Eisner Design

Wednesday, September 7th, 2016

Article source: Eisner Design

This project is an addition to the old 1970’s house by keeping the existing structure with new structures attaching to it.

The programmatic goals were to enlarge a very small kitchen & dining area, add a new den on the 1st floor having direct connection to the pool area that had not previously existed, and add a new master bedroom on the 2nd floor. The new mahogany walkway leading to the pool continues into the house to provide access and a direct visual connection to the pool.

Hybrid Farm Apartment Building in New York by Weston Baker Creative Group

Thursday, August 25th, 2016

Article source: Weston Baker Creative Group

The Hybrid Farm Apartment Building is a new building type designed for cities, which offers farm space for locally grown produce as well as residences. This particular hybrid farm design also addresses local conditions at the High Line and positions the hybrid building within the general context of architecture in the area. The geometry of the building adjusts to the angle of the sun throughout the day. Only the top of the building sees the morning sun because of the height of the surrounding buildings in Chelsea. As the sun comes across the sky to the West, the building twists to evenly distribute daylight throughout the day. The farm terraces are accessible by residents of the apartments on each floor. There is a public observation garden on the top floor and an art gallery on the second floor, both accessible from the High Line.

East Village Penthouse in New York by The Turett Collaborative

Sunday, August 14th, 2016

Article source: The Turett Collaborative

TCA has had a lot of experience connecting smaller apartments together into a seamless whole, but this adventurous client requested something we’d never seen before. In a newly constructed multi-residential development, in the East Village of NYC, TCA had the opportunity to meet a unique client’s desire to combine two penthouse condos… with a helical slide. In this transformation, two identical 1-bedroom units, one atop the other, were combined into a duplex 2-bedroom home with the option to descend in the usual way on a new Italian-made “Rintal” stair, or more speedily, in a seated position, careening through the new double-height atrium.

The Barn House in Diamond Point, New York by Sigurd Larsen Design & Architecture

Thursday, August 11th, 2016

Article source: Sigurd Larsen Design & Architecture

The idea of working with repeated motives of a barn gable is inspired by the American painters Charles Sheeler and Andrew Wyeth. Sculptural monoliths of barns are orientated according to the sloping landscapes giving interesting compositions where many volumes in various directions can be seen as a layered additive structure.

Article source: Concrete

Smart use of space

All Urby apartments feel larger than they are as a result of smart use of the available space. Despite being compact, the units are built with an optimal flow and spatial balance in mind. Sliding doors between connecting spaces let residents fully open up the apartment and experience its full size and sense of space. All apartments boast windows across the full width of the units. Combined with a straightforward design and use of light colours, the large windows bring daylight and a sense of spaciousness deep into the apartments, while at the same time offering panoramic views.
