W24 Townhouse, NY

The renovation and addition of this four story townhouse in Chelsea, New York City, involved gutting the entire building, leaving the original facade, brick party walls, and floor joists. The existing floor structures were reinforced, and a new roof structure was created to give additional height to the top floor. The rear facade was removed completely and a new 12 foot addition extended the living space into the garden on two levels. The new garden facade is composed of a custom designed powder coated steel frame with glass pivot doors and windows, which pushes the living space out into the rear yard while creating skylights to bring light into the interior. A new studio space was created on the ground floor adjacent to the garden, and a terrace was created on the 2nd floor as an extension of the master bedroom. Thomas Barry was the project architect and designer while working as a managing partner at Archi-Tectonics. Download PDF
