A Point In Design

Residential Design – New York City Tenement Bldg

Hello again readers,
This week I decided to create an infill housing project set in the heart of the NY city. My site was an open lot flanked by older tenement housing buildings. I took a more modern take on the structure and updated it as you can see below. My building is a 2 unit apartment complex with a two car garage (a total luxury in the city). The upper unit is a 2-floor, 2 bedroom, 2.5 bath luxury apartment with features such as a gas fireplace, an aquarium, study, gourmet kitchen, ground level covered patio, and a small rear yard. The loft space overlooking the great room could easily be made into a 3rd bedroom if desired.

The basement apartment (garden level) is a 1 bedroom/1 bath apartment with eat-in kitchen and features exposed brick walls. Lots of light floods the basement apartment from a large light well adjacent to the ground floor patio. Both apartments come with laundry facilities within the apartment. I also designed the building to have a common entrance foyer with mailboxes and a bike storage area. The building doesn’t have a doorman, but with all these features I think you can live without one.
