Inverted Warehouse to Townhouse by Dean-Wolf Architects



Dean Wolf Architects combine new construction with an old building structure to design a magnificent townhouse in the heart of Tribeca, New York City.

“The Inverted Warehouse/Townhouse is an addition and renovation of a Tribeca loft building. The existing structure, a traditional New York warehouse covers the entire lot, consuming the exterior space traditional in domestic construction. Inverting the conventional townhouse organization recovers this coveted ground. Dissipating energy into the dark center of this converted warehouse, three double story voids animate the missing “garden” of the townhouse providing light, air, and visual contemplation.

Greenwich Village Townhouse by Melander Architects


This beautiful townhouse in Greenwich Village New York City designed by Melander Architects.

From the architect site:

“A long-standing client hired Melander Architects to remodel his landmark 1852 Greenwich Village townhouse. The once gracious home had been subdivided into rental units and had fallen into disrepair over the past fifty years. The client wished to restore the building to a single family home with a ground-level flat.

Brooklyn Townhouse with a Roof Top Pool by Ben Herzog Architect


Ben Herzog architect renovated this beautiful Brooklyn townhouse with special pool and deck roof top .

“This townhouse underwent a fairly extensive renovation. We added a new stair bulkhead to the roof and a roof deck with embedded lights, removed a 2-story portion of the rear structural wall and replaced it with glass and aluminum panels, relocated the ‘cellar’ stairs from the front of the house to the back, added two gas fireplaces, removed the boiler and insulated the house completely so that heat can now be provided by highly-efficient heat pump units with no central mechanical room. The owners sourced and selected many of the materials including the beautiful cement tiles”.

Townhouse at 67 Charles Street in Greenwich Village NYC by Turett Architects

Another beautiful renovation of a New York City townhouse, completed at 2011 by Turett Architects.

What I love most about this house is the clean simple entrance,  the white colour with the glass wall makes it so different than other townhouses in the city.

From the architects site:

“The four story townhouse at 67 Charles is situated on a charming tree lined block in the heart of the original Greenwich Village Historic District. Originally constructed as one of a series of three rowhouses in 1867 by Bartlett Smith, the brownstone facade and painted wood cornice is a typical example of the French Second Empire style common to rowhouses built in that period. While the front facade has remained relatively unchanged throughout the building’s history, the interior has seen several renovations throughout the years which were less than kind to its historic bones. Several historic details on the parlor level including base and crown mouldings, a ceiling medallion, and fireplace mantles throughout the house had managed to survive. These historic elements were very dear to the clients, yet they also recognized the value of contemporary space planning, details, and amenities. Their design directive to TCA was threefold: to preserve these historic elements; to create a dialogue between these preserved elements and a decidedly contemporary envelope; and to create a functioning layout complete with modern amenities that would serve the family into the future. In response, TCA created an architectural language to highlight the moments where old and new would interact.
