Space of the Week for New York Magazine’s Design Hunting on The Cut

Space of the Week for New York Magazine’s Design Hunting on The Cut

07/01/2019

Our Park Slope Modern Row House project was recently selected by Wendy Goodman as her Space of the Week, part of New York Magazine’s Design Hunting on The Cut. Featuring handcrafted furniture and details by local artisans, interiors selections by CWB Interiors, formerly Fearins | Welch, and styled with rugs and art from the clients’ personal collection - it’s one of our favorites too! "Entrepreneur Tim Cotton, and his wife, Anne-Laure Py, who owns the Craftspring boutique in Gowanus, moved to Brooklyn in 2014 in search of a house that would accommodate their growing family — they now have two daughters. They found their diamond in the rough, an 1890 four-story rowhouse in a landmarked district of Park Slope. The house hadn’t been renovated or updated in decades. So with their architect, Brendan Coburn of CWB Architects, they gutted the whole thing and opened up the back, including the living room, seen above, to bring in air and light."

NYC x Design Award for West Village Development

NYC x Design Award for West Village Development

06/24/2019

Our West Village Development was an honoree in this year’s NYC x Design Awards. This landmarked Italianate style row house, originally built in 1857, is part of the Greenwich Village Historic District, Extension II. The building had a former life as a manufacturing building and later as a multi-family residence before it was purchased by a local developer. The newly renovated 8,200 sf single-family home incorporates several unique features including a private garage, terrarium, stepped terraces at the rear façade on each floor, sauna, and a private elevator. The front façade was completely rebuilt with brick at the upper floors and a steel-clad base at the street level. The new thermally broken steel windows on both the front and rear facades add a modern touch while the overall face of the building remains integral to the neighboring historic fabric.

Our Cobble Hill Row House & Carriage House project was recently published in Brownstoner's The Insider. Writer Cara Greenberg explores how the traditional and modern aspects of the design complement each other. Although the exterior is contextual with its landmarked 19th century neighborhood, the facade design details display a more modernist vocabulary, especially evident in the two projecting steel bay windows. The linear geometry of the facade is repeated on the interior with the modern detailing of the millwork, horizontal wood slats on the walls, and a modern stair.
