Greenwich Village Townhouse Guest Bedroom

New York, New York | Axis Mundi was commissioned to design and supervise the complete rehabilitation of a landmark Greek Revival townhouse from the 1840’s. Located on a charming street in New York’s Greenwich Village, the four floor building (plus sub-basement) was gutted to the original brick building envelope. All new mechanical, plumbing and electrical systems were installed, and the garden was redesigned. Axis Mundi was responsible for the complete architectural, interior design and decorating of this home.

The goal of the project was to respect the charms and scale of the original historical style without mimicking period details, and create a suitably modern context for the owner’s collection of artwork by Warhol, Haring and Basquiat. While restrained, the interior resolves certain contextual issues related to the site, yet is decidedly modernist in its attention to details. A custom bronze staircase, anodized aluminum metalwork, and overall spatial concerns relate to a contemporary sense of materiality. Most of the details were custom designed, from the marble mosaics in the bathrooms, to the millwork and Prouve-inspired shutters on the kitchen floor. A sculptural bronze and mirrored screen was designed by Axis Mundi to create an entrance foyer, using cast glass that was salvaged from Gio Ponti’s Alitalia showroom on Fifth Avenue. A chandelier was created with glass from the same project, all superbly fabricated by Urban Archeology. Various surrealist touches, such as a painting by Matta, and furniture by Salvador Dali and Antonio Gaudi, add a touch of humor to a formally rigorous design scheme.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Speaking of quiet, interior designer Cynthia Taylor-Luce brought up a great point: "There should be a decibel rating for the fan noise so pay attention to that, especially for bedrooms."Shop for this fan

4. Keep it moving. Those ceiling fans in your house shouldn't just gather dust once the warm weather passes. To distribute heat throughout the room, find the small switch on the main body of the fan that reverses the fan's direction. When you don't feel a breeze, that means the fan is blowing air upward, circulating air without cooling the room. Hot air trapped at the ceiling will be forced down along the walls. You'll feel warmer, and the thermostat will be satisfied sooner, saving you money. If you have ductwork visible in the house (usually in the attic, basement or crawl space), you can increase the efficiency of the system by sealing all the joints with duct mastic, a putty you can trowel on or squirt out with a caulk gun to permanently keep the ducts from leaking hot air. Duct tape is good for a lot of things, but sealing ducts is not one of them.
