Architectural Design

This contextually sensitive project involved the restoration of two Beaux Arts landmark mansions in the Upper East Side Historic District combined with the construction of a new infill addition to create 13 luxury condos. The project used 26 floor levels for the 13 units, which made for more interesting duplex residences. The design retained the major spaces of the existing interiors, turning formal clubrooms into parlors and dining rooms.

Dormers and slanted windows on the new building mimic a mansard roof and create space inside for a dramatic spiral stair.
