Greenwich Village Townhouse

The new owners of this West Village Manhattan townhouse knew that gutting an historically significant building would be a complex undertaking. They were admirers of Turett's townhouse renovations elsewhere in the neighborhood and brought his team on board to convert the multi-unit structure into a single family home. Turett's team had extensive experience with Landmarks, and worked closely with preservationists to anticipate the special needs of the protected facade.

The TCA team met with the city's Excavation Unit, city-appointed archeologists, preservationists, Community Boards, and neighbors to bring the owner's original vision - a peaceful home on a tree-line street - to life. Turett worked with adjacent homeowners to achieve a planted rear-yard design that satisfied all interested parties, and brought an impressive array of engineers and consultants aboard to help guarantee a safe process.

Turett worked with the owners to design a light-filled house, with landscaped yard and terraces, a music parlor, a skylit gym with pool, and every amenity. The final designs include Turett's signature tour-de-force stairs; sectional invention creating overlapping volumes of space; a dramatic triple-height steel-and-glass elevation; extraordinary acoustical and thermal insulation as part of a highly energy efficient envelope.

That is not paint, those windows are rolled steel. I recently had a client who wanted a similar look for an interior partition, we just painted wood Benjamin Moore's Wrought Iron, it looked great. BUT if you can afford the steel windows, nothing looks better!

good drainage. high deck, incorporated three level living at the back. A little plain for a 'merewether' house. the fencing suits the property, if designed properly, the wooden fencing material can be replaced as it rots. Not sure of the best materials to use to suit a harsh coastal climate. Ease of replacement needs to be a consideration.
