Chelsea Townhouse | New York, New York

Project Info

Comprehensive architectural and interior design were completed by our team, including five renovated floors and a new rooftop addition for this Chelsea townhouse, located amidst six historic townhouses built by Clement Clark Moore. The townhouse was converted from a series of eleven dilapidated single room occupancy dwellings to a single-family residence.

The townhouse renovation embraces the historic fabric of the existing building, with a refinement of detail and re-proportioning of spaces to create a fresh and cohesive language for the building. The rear façade is substantially opened with full height windows at the kitchen and parlor levels, allowing for the penetration of light deep into the primary living areas, and visual openness to the yard and sky.
