When you live in the city, privacy and comfort are two important things to consider. As an example, this Chelsea Townhouse spreads over three levels in Manhattan’s west side within a floor plan that celebrates openness and natural light. Designed by New York City-based studio Archi-Tectonics, the three story residence spreading over 3,400 square feet encompasses everything the owner – a fashion designer – was looking for. Cascading greenery in the garden acts as a buffer between the urban fabric nearby and the serene interior atmosphere.
Wood and brick shape the outdoor facade defined by extensive use of glass. These three elements marry the sleek contemporary design with the originality of the brownstone landmark townhouse they reinterpret. Archi-Tectonics are the ones behind the Schein Loft, another beautiful New York home. Both residences are comfortably modern and display a warm environment through the use of wood. The brickwork seen in this Chelsea townhouse grounds the design in the era it was born into, while a glass wall with dark frames shapes a light corridor penetrating deep into the elegant collection of spaces.
Connected via an interior wooden staircase with glass railings, the floors display an inspiring selection of colors and materials. The cozy bedroom features Johnny Swing‘s coin armchair right next to the terrace exit with pivoting doors. A second bedroom with its own bathroom shares the same floor with the TV lounge, completing the necessary townhouse comfort for a relaxed lifestyle.
