Nestled among a row of six historic buildings built by Clement Clark Moore, the Chelsea Townhouse has been restored to its former glory. Lang Architecture has breathed new life into the heritage building by transforming its eleven, neglected single room residences into a sophisticated single-family dwelling. Throughout its five floors, existing details have been salvaged and now live harmoniously with modern elements for a space that is both elegant and timeless. The rear of the home is now opened up with a wall of floor-to-ceiling windows in the kitchen and parlor level above. While illuminating the interior with warm, natural light, the glazed facade also affords views of the courtyard and street below.
