“Stick House, Brick Garden”
Housing; Brooklyn, New York, USA; 2021.
Taking ingredients from Greenpoint’s historical wood framed townhouses – wood cladding, masonry base, double hung windows with flower boxes – this project re-shuffles elements of its context while focusing on resilience. At street level, the house’s masonry creates a social garden-room at the sidewalk’s edge with terraced brickwork in the spirit of the historical stoop. Windowpanes establish a grided organization of cedar panels and battens, which is echoed in the interior trim as a framework for the clients’ collections and artworks.
“Clinton Hill Townhouse”
Housing; Brooklyn, NY, USA; 2017.
In the renovation of a landmarked townhouse in the Clinton Hill area of Brooklyn, the house’s extensive historic detail is offset with modern insertions, some which take the house’s deep, curvilinear forms as the basis for the new elements. With minimal, crisp geometries denoting areas of change, the house retains a record of its historic condition.
Commercial; New York, NY, USA; 2019.
Situated in a landmarked Tribeca loft building, the new US headquarters for British clothing brand maharishi is both a showroom and distribution hub. A kind of building-within-a-building, the project preserves the space’s details by placing the new shop inside the historic interior, floating within it. A grid of cabinetry defines the insertion, marking out two levels: halfway through the space, a mezzanine levitates above the shop, creating another, more intimate room.
Cultural, Educational; New York, NY, USA; 2018.
An installation for the exhibition Architecture Books - Yet to Be Written at Storefront for Art and Architecture, Storefront Library is the anchor program for the New York Architecture Book Fair. By extending the gallery’s iconic rotating facade panels into bookshelves that pierce the public space of the sidewalk, the project sets the stage for an exhibition shaped by public participation and dialogue.
