Together with our clients we brought a traditional, outdated townhouse situated at the base of a high-rise, into a clean, modern living experience that matches their minimalist tastes.

The clients were looking for an efficiently choreographed home that reworked the existing interior into a sleek modern design that resonated with both of them. We sculpted the interior with integrated millwork and wall realignment to provide a simple layout without any wall protrusions or awkward soffits. The first floor kitchen and living space use millwork and furniture to define programmatic functions while still allowing both to flow into each other to accommodate guests. Together with an updated mechanical system, the experience of walking through the project develops a sense of ease and comfort that is reinforced through its material palette.

The integration of custom millwork into the existing framework of the townhouse allows for selective texture and materiality to be celebrated against a crisp bright backdrop. White oak chevron flooring, full-height marbled slabs, and exposed concrete structural walls introduce both warmth and raw character into 4 floors of space with museum-quality detailing. The residence’s four bathrooms include minimalist plumbing fixtures, curbless showers, and custom vanities.

Walking through the project, the spatial sequencing was tailored to the clients. The master bedroom, bathroom, and closet approach is fully configured with the schedules and morning rituals of the clients. The re-configured stair wraps around an exposed concrete shear wall that links the spaces to each other while adding texture to the project. The 4th floor has been optimized to house a photography studio, whereas the second floor accommodates overnight guests.

Our intervention enables the homeowners to seamlessly navigate through the townhouse in an efficient layout. We have transformed a generic, developer-driven interior into a residential experience that reflects the detailed-oriented personalities of our client.
