An enlightened enthusiast of New York City architecture engaged the firm to transform this 1830’s Federal style building. The structure was repurposed with the ground floor and cellar as commercial space, and a three story Urban Villa above. The Villa triplex includes a rooftop terrace and is organized around an interconnecting atrium that brings natural light deep into interior spaces of the dwelling. The plan is organized around a diagonally positioned stair and bridge system, connecting the north and south zones of the penthouse. This shift of geometry within the plan mirrors a shift in the street grid below connecting the architecture to a unique characteristic of the surrounding city layout.
