Greenwich Village Duplex

New York, NY

1990

In response to the clients’ request for a space that evokes a bygone era of urban civility, we explored ideas from early Modernism, prior to its evolution into the International Style. Thus, the use of decorative elements such as trim and moldings is extensive yet tightly and rationally controlled. The walls of the living and dining rooms are clad with wood panels that allow for a fluid transition between the rooms and mediate their disparate scales. Throughout the project, native woods–poplar, maple, and cherry–were used in both natural and dyed states and assembled with the highest standards of craftsmanship.
