Formerly the studio and workshop of mid century art and furniture masters, Philip and Kelvin LaVerne, this Landmarked building in Soho was transformed into an 11,000sf private residence with a commercial space on the ground floor.
Neighboring buildings were underpinned to lower the level of the cellar, which is now a full spa for the homeowner. Dry stacked stone walls blend into the cellar swimming pool with an endless wave machine, a hot tub, exercise room, massage room, steam room and sauna.
The building has new large commercial speed elevator, 2-story living room with wood burning fireplace, 6 bedrooms, an interior courtyard that brings daylight to the middle of every floor, a rooftop addition for entertaining, and a rooftop pool. There is handmade artisan detailing throughout.
This project won Interior Design Magazine’s 2020 NYCx Design Award for Best Freestanding House/Townhouse.
