House on the Upper East Side

New York, NY

2005

This four-story townhouse in New York City presents a crisp modernist face to a neighborhood composed mostly of historic revival buildings. Clad in large slabs of Wisconsin limestone and resin-baked mahogany, and detailed with blackened-steel window casings and an inset entrance, the street front suggests invitation and shelter. Upon entering, the subtle luxury of the material palette is evident, offering a tactile and sensuous experience.

Sliding stainless steel mesh acoustical panels separate the first floor living and dining areas. The panels may be banded together to form intimate areas, or tucked into a thin wall alcove to create a generous open area. Similarly, the rear wall of railed glass doors can be opened to directly engage the courtyard.

The limestone cladding is precisely cut in mitered, quirked corners lending the building the sturdiness of a solid stone structure.
