The top four levels of a rare Upper West Side loft building originally enlarged by the Rockwell Group were substantially rebuilt when the new owners acquired and merged the top two apartments and wanted to be transported to Majorca where they spent their honeymoon, while overlooking the tress of the Natural History Museum Park across the Avenue and Central Park beyond. We found hidden volume undiscovered by the previous architects, that yielded a two-story living room, and we developed an architectural language that recalled Spanish Medieval and Moorish elements to pull together the diverse levels and circulation patterns of this complex townhouse-in-the-sky.
