Jacobs Residence

This 2,000 sf three-bedroom apartment in an archetypal 1927 co-op building in Manhattan’s Greenwich Village represents a rigorous modernist edit of a classic prewar residence. The spacious dwelling was created by combining two one-bedroom units.

Walls were removed to create a dramatic floor-through living and dining room ensemble framed by original, graceful arched openings. In a bold move, BFA raised the floor of one of the two original sunken living rooms to make a large master bedroom suite and to create space under the floor to house central air conditioning equipment. The modern kitchen and bathrooms are entirely new.
