Montebar Villa

Perched on the edge of the Swiss Alps, the Montebar Villa uses its exterior facade and contoured form to blend into its mountainous setting. To abide by local restrictions, the design started with a dark gray pitched roof, leading to its current single-material exterior of porcelain stoneware tiles. Each tile was meticulously designed and placed to the exterior walls, six-sided roof, and custom shutters for a seamless boulder-like cladding that gets lost in the landscape. In contrast to its monolithic facade, a glazed south-facing wall bathes the interior with natural light and provides views of the vineyards and valley below.

  • Primrose Hill House

    Charged with maximizing the floor area and natural light of an existing mews, the Primrose Hill House uses its black and white palette to provide a suitably modern backdrop for the owners' carefully chosen furnishings. The home is centered around the open living space on the second floor, which is also home to a private terrace and the kitchen. The master suite and a secondary bedroom occupy the first floor, while the entry floor is home to a shower, another bedroom, and a study that opens onto the street via large carriage doors.

  • Hubert St. Triplex Penthouse

    From a liquor merchant to a pistachio baron to a luxury Tribeca residence, the Hubert St. Triplex Penthouse is the resurrection of an 1892 building. Exterior architectural elements, including moldings, cornices, and arched windows were salvaged and restored to their original state, as well as the interior's wooden beams and exposed brick walls. In the double-height living area, a steel and glass catwalk creates a second story, allowing for a wrap-around library. Although concealed from the street below, a 1,000 square-foot penthouse was added to the rooftop, featuring zinc and steel windows, wooden doors, and steel railings to maintain the building's historic charm.
