Client: Smyrnios Family

Project Status: Construction commences, Fall 2014


The 1980s Yorkville row house originally designed by acclaimed architect Barton Meyers was built as two 2-story duplex units. The project scope includes converting the building into one 4-story single family residence, renovating and reprogramming the full interior, adding on a 15’ rear addition, elevator and redesigning the rear facade.

The interiors are designed around two double height atrium spaces and the new 4 story south facing full height glass facade. On the outside of each of the 10’ high glass sliding doors is a minimal glass railing, allowing the homeowner a seamless indoor outdoor relationship.

The light filled open floor plan boasts a full third floor master retreat inclusive of an indulgent spa like master bath, large sitting area with fireplace, 20' of closet space and a frosted glass floor below a large 10'x10' skylight. The kitchen below the glass floor allows for a bright, light filled space within the middle windowless portion of the narrow floor plan. The lower level entertainment space stretches out to a secluded terraced garden. And of course a new elevator makes the four story residence accessible. The unique design features of the renovated rowhouse make it unlike any other on the market.
