Overview

Combining the best of a comfortable suburban home with the sophistication and location of a city apartment, this 6700 square foot, full floor, gut renovations is the perfect house in the city. The generous foyer, kitchen, dining room, living room and family room are designed for hosting functions and fundraisers. On the other side of the home, Studio ST Architects created a large “basement playroom” for the family’s three young sons by combining two bedrooms. A service entry was made into a mudroom. The design conveys a soft opulence, rich yet comfortable, beautiful with functional.

Goals

Esther Sperber, founder of Studio ST Architects, believes that design is a collaborative process. She recently published a cover story in Lilith Magazine titled “Gender and Genius” discussing the psychological and architectural aspects of collaborative creativity. In the order to foster a collaborative design process the firm created numerous photo realistic computer rendering of each room which enabled a lively dialogue between the architects and clients sparking unexpected creativity.
