A townhouse in the West Village

My New York townhouse spree has not stopped. This West Village home that was completed a few years ago by BWArchitects is fan-freaking-tastic! Located in historic Greenwich Village, this extensive reconstruction of a 1840s townhouse fuses past and present into a new, sophisticated 4,000 square foot home. Striking a balance between historic and modern guides all aspects of design in this reinvigorated Greek Revival townhouse. Steel and glass windows line the basement and parlor floors’ South facades, drawing in natural light and air from the garden. Daylight is also funneled through the home via a skylight-topped 4- story open staircase. Industrial details of structural steel and an exposed manually-geared hardware operate a pivoting glass and steel Penthouse wall. Interior design by Poonam Khanna.

The best spot in the house - above leading into below :)

Delicious

If you were baking in this kitchen you might just want to lick the spoon. I want to lick the kitchen. Yum! By London-based architecture and design practice De Rosee Sa.

Looking to add a little drama to your kitchen? Be unique and go with a glass countertop. You have seen concrete, marble and butcherblock counters over and over again...but glass can be an unexpected, spectacular addition. CBD Glass Studios has some stunning options for kitchens, bathrooms and even bars. Check them out here: http://www.cbdglass.com/categories/portfolio/glass-countertops

Julie Nabucet - a Parisian apartment

I am always drooling over Parisian apartments and how stylish they all seem to be, and this one is no different. Remodeled by architect Julie Nabucet (whom I featured here), this one has beautiful chevron hardwood, some sweet light fixtures and fun colours in the kitchen. Creating a banquette situation against the kitchen island was a really smart space-saver for a dining area.

Another church conversion

Yes, it is another church conversion here on DTI, one of our favourite types of transformations. I think what really gets me with church conversions these days is my new appreciation for stained glass windows, as my current home has several and they're just such beautiful architectural elements. The windows of this home are really stunning - the yellow is so pretty. Chicago-based interior architect Linc Thelen has turned this church into a modern home with a sleek kitchen (I love how it is centered around the massive stained glass grouping) a massive 2-sided fireplace focal point and lots of white and blond wood. Everything is kept bright and fairly simple which keeps your attention where it should be - on those glorious windows.
