Description

What does a home look like in twenty-first-century New York? While the city s name alone brings to mind very specific ideas the Fifth Avenue penthouse, with its elegant mouldings and crystal chandeliers; the SoHo loft, with its bright spaces and air of bohemian ease; the Brooklyn brownstone, with its fireplaces, parquet floors, and lush backyards the truth is, New York today is much more than this, and the potential for variety in ways of living is, now more than ever, virtually limitless. As a result, in the twenty-first century, the combined design professions enjoy an unprecedented menu of prospective solutions, whether based upon respect for a classically inflected New York past, an emphatic denial of such a tradition, or, most often, some hybrid response that often yields the best innovation possible. New York Living celebrates this vast potential while exploring contemporary apartments and town houses throughout the city, ranging beyond Manhattan into the outer boroughs of Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Island, and the Bronx, and back to the centre, Manhattan, which continues to climb ever higher in its reach toward the sky.

Description

Amidst the many worthy books under way or published on New York architecture, design, and style, most focus on one style, one designer, or one residential category. New York Living: Re-Inventing Home will instead celebrate or delight in a broad array of contemporary residences that have been renovated and re-invented but which emerge from traditional apartment or building types with historic roots throughout New York’s five boroughs. This book will appeal to anyone interested in the present state of design creativity in all of New York City: under-known neighborhoods, previously ignored typologies, ingenious use of space, and how to make a home within the city’s entirely envied borders.

What does a home look like in twenty-first century New York? New Yorkers once had fixed ideas as to what was what-you had the Park Avenue mansion, the 5th Avenue Penthouse, the SoHo loft; the Lower East Side tenement, the Bohemian Village ruin-but now so much more is possible. This book celebrates the vast possibilities open to today’s urbanite, featuring more than 25 contemporary apartments and town houses that exemplify this idea.
