(EDITOR’S NOTE: If you’re looking for traditional New York City interiors, you probably will not find much of it here. I’m definitely a fan of modern interiors, especially those with a mid-century feel and aesthetic. In the past 20 years, most of the home interiors I’ve executed have been of the modern type. Below, Dwell singles out a few good examples of modern row house renovations. However, please don’t be misguided by the absurd price per square foot quoted for construction. It’s simply not realistic if you are seeking a high-end result unless you are simply decorating. -RJ)
An excerpt from a post that originally appeared on www.dwell.com on November 5, 2014
Renovating a row house without disrupting the continuity between it and its neighbors is no easy feat. Here, we examine five row houses across New York City that were successfully modernized, while still respecting the surrounding architecture.
Lengthy renovations often mean unforseen expenses, but not for architect Jeff Sherman. It took a decade to transform his Brooklyn row house from the most run-down on the block to the most design-savvy one, but in the end he managed to do it for about $100 per square foot.
