el greco residence
This existing home in the heart of Tarrytown was victim to repeated additions and remodels that lacked clarity and purpose. Recognizing the site’s potential, our clients purchased this property and called upon us to capitalize on previously missed opportunities while transforming the inefficient 5000 sf home into a high-performance sustainable structure with modern livability as its hallmark. The complete interior remodel brings natural light and spaciousness to the core of the large home, where a load-bearing plaster wall acts as a permeable threshold between living spaces. A sculptural steel stair folds its way up to a completely reorganized second floor housing a generous master retreat, children’s playroom and treetop roof-deck. Gnarled live oaks backdrop a new skylit screened porch and dining-deck and a board-formed concrete spa anchors a cantilevered deck that floats above the bluff below.
