A hundreds of years old and dilapidated building was once an eyesore, but Fabrica 718 Architects turned the rundown space into a 3,000+ square foot family home that’s one of New York’s first passive buildings. Utilizing 15% of less than what typical homes would to cool or heat their homes, this 2012 renovation is a huge success on so many levels.
The space offers up an art studio, both your standard public and private spaces, as well as a rooftop terrace that has gorgeous views. Materials are sparse with white walls, industrial stairs and a little bit of peek-a-boo brick on an existing load bearing wall. This residence is a beautiful accent to the already design savvy New York City.
