Called the Village Townhouse project, this 2,550-sq-ft house was raised to its current state of glory by Axis Mundi, a New York City-based studio. Originally built in 1984 in the Greek Revival style, the mansion has four floors and a subbasement. The rehabilitation program included changing all electrical, plumbing and mechanical systems, and redesigning the garden. Both the architectural and interior design changes were created and supervised by Axis Mundi.
The studio managed to create the ideal context in which the owner of the house could display precious artworks by Basquiat, Haring and Warhol. Many of the interior details were custom made, including the bathroom marble mosaics, the bronze and mirror screen in the foyer, the bronze staircase, and more. A few surrealist works of art by Dali and Matta complete the contemporary beauty of the home.
