Weinstein Residence, pre-war apartment design

weinsteincomp.jpg This is a composite photo of the recently completed Weinstein Residence on West 81st in New York. We really started from scratch on this design, a complete gut renovation. Located in a historic, pre-war apartment building, the intention here was to allude back to this history while making a new home for a busy professional couple.

As an architect now based in Boulder, Colorado, it is always interesting for me to design projects in New York and Chicago, places that greatly influenced my graduate school eduation (Yale) and early professional experience (Chicago). I am particularly interested in historic renovations where we restore or retain the historic character of a space and introduce a modern idiom to begin a dialogue between new and old.
