About This Book
Residences featured here show New York living from our present time: homes that defy traditional definition but which are nevertheless rooted in the historic ground of the city.
What does a home look like in twenty-first-century New York? While the city’s name alone brings to mind very specific ideas—the Fifth Avenue penthouse, with its elegant moldings and crystal chandeliers; the SoHo loft, with its bright spaces and air of bohemian ease; the Brooklyn brownstone, with its fireplaces, parquet floors, and lush backyards—the truth is, New York today is much more than this, and the potential for variety in ways of living is, now more than ever, virtually limitless. As a result, in the twenty-first century, the combined design professions enjoy an unprecedented menu of prospective solutions, whether based upon respect for a classically inflected New York past, an emphatic denial of such a tradition, or, most often, some hybrid response that often yields the best innovation possible.
This was a wonderful project to work on and gave me the opportunity to see what is being done within the New York area. Of course space is the huge challenge in NYC homes and apartments and getting light into the interior of brownstones. The variety and inventive nature of the projects chosen for this book go from the humble to the very well off. Enjoy the book!!
