Riverside Drive, NYC - Apartment

The renovation of this Washington Heights pre-War gem was equal parts restoration and transformation bringing the 100 year-old apartment to meet a contemporary life-style. The light-drenched space achieves a calm balance by juxtaposing the formal and the informal. The modern and the historic. The lavish and the simple. The outcome is a highly personalized and curated space.

Fort greene, Brooklyn - brownstone

The landmarked brownstone, dating back to 1858, was designed as a double duplex for an extended family. A rear two-story glass-sheathed addition at the lower duplex adds space for two painting studios for the two elders who are both painters. Their daughter and her family, in the upper duplex, gained the addition of the spacious deck. The renovation demanded a light touch to maintain the few original details that remained. The spaces pull in as much lightas possible and offer open flexibility to adopt to the diversity of family activities.

little compton, ri - water-front house

With Dan Bucsescu Architect. Situated on Brigg's Marsh, the original house was built in 1963. Due to an unsalvageable structure, all that remained was the foundation, memories, and a folly - a stair circulating around a chimney. The design opened and enlarged the floor plan at the east end beyond the kitchen and at the anchor point where the stair circulates. In doing so, the design enhances the dialogue between the interior and exterior through the use of light and views.

 

 

 
 

north fork, li - beach house bathroom

This bathroom renovation involved the combining of two small rooms within a house dating back to the mid-1800's.  A soft palette of textural materials and tones - whitewashed reclaimed wood, unlacquered brass fixtures and green marble tile was introduced to strike a balance with understated modernist lines. The room was designed to be a hub of activity where durability and functionality would be valued by a family with children.
