9 Minetta Street Townhouse, West Village, New York, NY
9 Minetta Street is a 20 unit 5 story residential tenement building that will be converted into a 5500 sf single family townhouse. Construction will commence in summer of 2014.
Located at the heart of the West Village in Manhattan, the uniquely angled narrow street and the densely built urban fabric posed a challenge to create an open, light-filled, yet intimate residence. H2 Architects met the challenge by opening up the interior spaces to create vertical and horizontal views throughout the house and by using materials which allow light to permeate and reflect inside. The configuration of the open and closed sections of the street facing façade is modulated to allow a comfortable degree of privacy while letting a maximum amount of daylight filter into the interior. 
The design features the following:
  1. Entrance Lobby with double-height gallery spaces opening onto a landscaped garden at the rear.
  2. Landscaped Roof Deck with custom designed stainless steel hot tub, fully equipped barbeque cooking counter and built-in seating and storage.
  3. Elevator with 7 stops connecting the Cellar to the Roof Deck.
  4. New garage and curb-cut.
  5. Kitchen / Dining / Family Rooms
  6. Living / Library / Music Rooms
  7. Master Bedroom Suite with Bathroom and Dressing Room
  8. 3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathroom, 3 Powder Rooms, 1 Laundry Room
  9. 3 wood-burning fireplaces
  10. State-of-the Art automated building management system for heating, cooling, electrical, shading, lighting, security and A/V: all controllable via iPhones and iPads.
  11. Business class networking and WiFi systems, combined with theatre quality audio and viewing experiences throughout the house.
