Oreste Drapaca Architect

Townhouse in New York



An extensive renovation in the Chelsea area of New York.

The project's brief was to achieve a modern design that would endure time and passing fashion.

A double-height living room is opening to the street via a tall window (20 feet/6 metres). A bridge connects the dining room to an individual platform at mid-height, from where one is able to open a French door above the street. The stucco façade alludes to the Italian member of the resident family.

Area: 5,500 square feet /
511 square meters.
