New York City
This King Street townhouse began life as a Federal Style townhouse in the 1820’s, similar to the adjacent ones. When the Greek Revival style came into fashion, a third floor addition and added detailing changed the style.
King Street served as a four family dwelling when the client purchased the building. A complete gut renovation created a three floor unit for his family and a rental apartment on the basement level.
Changes to the façade included enlarging the parlor floor windows, and changing the front entrance from a pair of doors to a single door. Located in the Charlton-King-Vandam Historic District, these changes required approval by the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission.
Interiors were gutted down to the masonry walls. Floors were restructured and made level. HVAC ducts and equipment were located and routed for minimal impact to the design. All new moulding, millwork and details were designed to recall the Greek Revival period.
