West Side Brownstone


Begun as a master bedroom and bath renovation, this project evolved into the renovation of the entire five-story, 19th century brownstone located on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. The design maintained the parlor level as the public floor with a sculptural wooden stair unspooling down to the dining room, open kitchen and garden below. However, the depth of the floor plate limited both the interior light and the connection to the garden. CDR created a double-heighted connection by cutting back the floor plate which enhanced the spatial quality of the rooms on both levels.

Do DiDo Duplex


Perched on the 10th and 11th floors of a landmarked building on the southern edge of Gramercy Park, the 1,500 square foot residence consists of two levels with exposure to sunlight on three sides. Occupied for nearly 50 years by the client’s grandparents, the new interior stitches together original details with the intervention of new materials, custom-designed furniture and contemporary art work.
