The new, modern townhouse takes its cue from the growing movement of tiny home living, but builds upwards to create an ample floor area on the thin, narrow site. We took the typical 20' wide 2-story townhouse, cut it in half and stacked it on itself. The resulting design provides 3 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, and capitalizes on a private roof deck and garden for additional living space in good weather.
The modern townhouse interiors are primarily designed around a custom wood stairwell that connects the three stories and roof deck in a single gesture. A skylight sits above the stairwell and helps bring natural light into the center of the floor plan. White walls and light wood floors help brighten the narrow home and make it feel wider than it is. Additionally, custom millwork in the living room and primary bedroom provide unique storage solutions without overpowering the space.
In addition to the 1,800sf of living space, the townhouse also includes a garden and roof deck for an additional 800sf of space for private entertaining when the NYC weather permits. The floor-to-ceiling glazing on both sides of the home allows light to travel through at all times of the day, and also creates a line of sight to the terraced greenspace from nearly all spaces in the home.
While the location and amenities of the home are highly desirable, marketing such a unique property comes with its own series of challenges. Being able to design the architecture, interiors and brand design in unison allowed our team to create striking visuals prior to construction that helped build awareness of the unique real estate asset prior to even breaking ground. These branded marketing assets include a custom website, real estate brochures, and an active social media campaign.
