The Renovation of a Greenwich Village Townhouse
New York, NY
This Greenwich Village Townhouse was a complete demolition and renovation. Every surface and every system is new.
Having lived in Hong Kong for three years, the owners decided to come back to New York to completely remodel their townhouse. The house was further improved by adding a new rear yard sanctuary and landscaped roof terrace. We also did the decoration on the project, incorporating both existing furnitures accumulated while the owners were living in Asia with new furnishings, window and wall treatments and other decorative items.
"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."
