temperature dropped a lot those two days… does this mean autumn has gone and winter is here? saw this post from Architecture Records, reminds me such feeling – the early fall temperature.
West Village carriage house, owned by photographer Jan Staller and designed by New York City–based firm Christoff:Finio Architecture. a simple but rich in detail urban dwell project.
project description from architect:
” A recent fire in this 150 year old carriage house in the West Village caused irreparable structural damage, but it also offered an opportunity to re-think the possibilities of urban living. This small, two story house fronts a narrow alley. A new screen wall of twisting metal bands defines a shallow “urban garage” between street and interior – a place just deep enough to store bikes, garbage cans, or tools. A shared rear yard serves as an extension to the living and kitchen areas – the kitchen work surface and cabinetry literally extend to the exterior. A frameless glass facade offers a view to the river on the alley side, while a wall of elongated slate tile allows for privacy from adjacent buildings on the other. “
love the front facade which gives you a sense of privacy yet can still see through what’s going on outside (sense of security).
