This classic brownstone off Central Park West had the common history of being brutally chopped up and re-purposed over the last century. Our historic preservation skills guided the process of restoration and renovation. Significant original details remained. In many cases, elements were re-fabricated to complete missing or broken sections of wood and plaster detail.
Historic research informed the recreation of the Brownstone stoop and stair, torn down sometime in the 40’s. At the core, structural restoration was needed to repair worn and poorly executed prior alterations. All systems, including plumbing and electrical work was replaced. A modern central air system was discreetly integrated into every part of the home, in addition to nearly invisible security and AV systems. Modern lighting and décor, including a number of custom dyD pieces underscore the historic spaces while expressing the vital contemporary life of the family who live here.
