New York, New York
Using the typical row townhouse layout, the curve townhouse stands out with its curved terraces that animate the front facade. The curved bench extends to the interior, creating a flowing connection between inside and outside. The public stair is housed in a curved volume which is the most efficient way to comply with the New York City Code while creating a unique interior space in the apartment.
The space and materials are simple. A main space is a loft-like open area with a living room, dining room and kitchen. Two bedrooms face the quiet back yard. The bathrooms are tucked between the curved stair and the supporting exposed concrete wall.
