With its grand bones and patrician facade, this 1848 Gramercy Park townhouse presented exciting challenges for the new generation of the Isaly family. Previous conversions left one large triplex crowned by three loft-like residences. Their dream was simple but ambitious: the reconfiguration of the building into two dwellings, one atop the other, of equal value and scale.

The old structure meant investing in a whole new steel frame, replacement electrical, plumbing and HVAC systems. A new top floor and redesigned walls created the two dwellings. An open-plan and bright interiors with large windows added strong character to the living spaces while keeping them look traditional and elegant.
