The Chelsea Triplex

Tamara Hubinsky and Adam Bremner were in the midst of planning a few small renovations on their landmarked Chelsea co-op, when they found out that the unit right next door to them was up for sale. Recognizing a great opportunity when they saw it, they brought in designer Alex Scott Porter to transform the two separate apartments into the 3-level home of their dreams. Now the beautiful and functional family home is a cozy place to get away from the buzz of the city and also incorporates green features like reclaimed wood, cork flooring, vintage decor, passive solar design, natural materials and double windows that keep out noise and regulate interior temperatures.

The Union Square Duplex

Kate and Daniel Wadia wanted their double-level Fifth Avenue apartment to look like a “little house in the sky” and after stepping into the light-as-air duplex, we congratulate them for accomplishing their goal. Joseph Tanney and Robert Lutz of Resolution: 4 Architecture helped the homeowners achieve their vision of an open space in many different shades of white, and the final result is surprisingly functional (you’d never know by looking at these pristine pics, but the Wadias have two small children!). In addition to being gorgeous, the home also features glazed windows, an energy-efficient HVAC system and the architects made use of the pre-existing floors.
