GREENWICH VILLAGE TOWNHOUSE
Fairfax & Sammons have been awarded the 2017 Addison Mizner Award which celebrates the achievement of the finest practitioners in the fields of Architecture, Interior Design Landscape Architecture, Urbanism as well as Craftsmanship, and Construction.
"Frankly, the garden was nothing before," Meredith Jenkins said. "We wanted to make it shine and make it an extension of the house."
Fairfax, the managing partner of Fairfax & Sammons Architects, advised the Jenkins on everything from patio furniture to plants. (One choice: crawling ivy.)
"The lushness ... reminds me of our former residence in Hong Kong," said Meredith Jenkins, who politely declined to reveal how much the work cost other than to joke "too much." "It's a wonderful escape from the city."
