UWS Townhouse modern-
 

What Houzz contributors are saying:

This infill house on Manhattan's Upper West Side shows how a contemporary construction — terracotta "gabions," or square tubes spaced evenly apart in a frame — give the residents some privacy and relate to the traditional brick of the neighbors. Behind the gabions is full-height glazing; these terracotta pieces also provide some shade.
This townhouse on Manhattan's Upper West Side is a variation on a theme. What look like three skinny windows stacked on one side of the street facade are actually just openings in the terracotta screen the sits in front of the floor-to-ceiling glass the spans from side to side. Privacy and filtered views give way at the skinny "windows."

Again, perforated Corten steel makes a beautiful veil like privacy scrim over this glassy urban facade slipped between two traditional masonry buildings.
