4th Street Residence

This residence, designed for two brothers living in NYC, aims to maximize every inch of a unique space in a historic building on West 4th street.

Spread out over three levels, the unit includes two bedrooms, two unique bathrooms, a triple height stair, sliding glass walls and two private patios with spectacular views of the city.

The design plays with a balance between warm materials and neutral white space. Creating areas for the brothers to live both independently and communally drove each level to serve a very different function. Holding close to their inspiration (mid-century modern homes and a very specific warm wood) helped tie each of the levels together into a cohesive and thoughtful whole.
