Murray Hill Townhouse modern-living-room

Murray Hill Townhouse

An original 1901 two-story carriage house facade conceals a 6-story, 8000 SF townhouse beyond. A gut renovation was required to remedy the spatial fragmentation resulting from numerous renovations. A new open steel staircase became the chief unifying organizing element for movement and visual focus. The stair unites the various elements of the building’s split section and reveals two impressive double height living spaces which satisfy the client's desire for loft-like public areas with the intimacy of townhouse living. The Owner’s affection for Moroccan details inspired custom laser-cut aluminum screens, carved Spanish Cedar doors, custom stone mosaics, and special finishes. These details, woven through the house, capture the essence of the Moorish influence while still maintaining the modern visual and spatial language inherent in SPG’s design. Photos by Daniel Levin

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Some of the volumes in the house are two stories high, making the screen’s impact all the more dramatic.For those of you who are wondering about that long, narrow window in the walnut wall, here’s what’s on the other side.
