A repeat client purchased a demolished roof top with the hopes of rebuilding the space. The home was developed into a New York City "Ranch House", with its prerequisite yard.The wrap around terrace, long and narrow, was maximized with appropriately scaled exposures, each room having its own relationship with the outdoors. The furnishing were purchased to match the warm and elegant ambiance.
A cliff-side ocean front property was purchased with the request for a manageable home, all on one level. In addition, low maintenance was required. The floor plan developed with two pavilions linked by an outdoor covered sitting area and pool. The Lanai is sited for the prevailing breeze, but protected from the full oceanic head winds that frequent the Carribean.
THE TREE HOUSE
The tree-locked house, built on a rock outcropping, needed to expand. Existing trees were cherished and were required to be incorporated into the design. A large extension features an all weather screened porch.
A sun filled space required reorientation and a fresh design. The historic building where the apartment is located helped define the timeless detailing of this home. Mirror panels were used both on window jambs and transoms for illusory effect.
THE COUNTRY SOPHISTICATE
A truncated farm house needed attention. Larger living quarters were required for the transplanted New York City artists. A grand entertainment space, live-in kitchen, screened porch, and master bedroom suite were the requirements for this project..
UPPER EAST SIDE TOWNHOUSE
The mandate for this project was "MORE!!". A returning client desired a still stronger design statement than the previous. More blues, more shine, more chic. Saturated colors and sculptural relief dress this Upper East Side, NYC townhouse.

THE RESIZED COTTAGE
A diminutive house needed to grow. The client desired a clean modern space in which to entertain, and spend personal time. Integrating a contemporary larger volume with a small scale historic house was the challenge.
