Lubrano Ciavarra Architects, is a Brooklyn-based architecture and design studio founded by Anne Marie Lubrano and Lea Ciavarra in 1999. This West Village townhouse is an absolute dream. It is a beauty inside and out, and despite the small footprint (it’s 2900 sq ft!) living here would be living large. (I would be happy just to have the first bathroom below – stunning!)
I'm pretty sure no one in North America considers a 2900 sq ft home small, including me. I said this home had a small footprint.
The footprint is not 2900, there's just a mistake somewhere.
Oh, I get it, about 900 square feet on each floor and there's 3 floors. Yes, 900 sq ft is a small footprint!
do you know where the red table is from on the rooftop patio?
Sorry lindsay I don't know
Please correct the article if the footprint is not 2900 (which would make for a ginooooooormous house, especially by NY standards), it is a tad misleading! The house is fabulous, though!
@kim or anybody else – for all of us not native speakers? What small footprint means in this context? Thank you.
superdutch and Ombia, footprint does not mean square footage, so there is nothing to correct in this post. footprint = The surface space occupied by a structure or device (google it). This home has no front yard, zero side yard, almost no backyard, and seems very narrow. So I came to the conclusion that it has a small footprint, despite being 2900 sq ft.
Greetings, glad to see the positive response to this project here. To settle the footprint debate – The house is 4 floors (garden, parlor, 2nd and 3rd fl) at about 670sf each. The interior width is just over 15'. You can find this project in the upcoming edition of Dwell. -Thanks
Such a North American statement–to consider that a 2900 sq ft home is small. 😉
