Project Description

Carriage House

New York, NY

2003

This design transformed an historic Greenwich Village carriage house into an inviting and contemporary residence. The main living area–used to entertain guests and showcase the client’s art collection—is an open space that features white walls, dark-stained oak floors, and a lighting installation by James Turrell. As additions to the building were prohibited by the Landmarks Preservation Commission, 1100 Architect devised a way to create a new level underneath the existing building by underpinning the structure and excavating a full basement that now houses a theater, a wine cellar, and a bar. A switchback staircase connects the four floors, which include a guestroom, master bedroom suite, and roof terrace.
