Turett Collaborative Architects renovated a once four-story, multi-unit townhouse into a single family residence with five floors. At only 18 feet wide, the design was a challenge as using every square inch is critical in New York City residences. With its location being close to the art galleries and the Highline park, they wanted to focus on creating a space that would work for potential art collectors.

At the back of the townhouse, a two-story extension was added with a 20 foot tall wall of glass which gives full access views to the rear garden from both levels. It also fills the interior with light. The back patio makes the kitchen and eating area feel even more open by visually continuing the space to the exterior.
