The steel and walnut bookshelf in the living room is not only a storage unit, but also a sculptural object that extends from the ground floor upstairs to the second level, where it also serves as a stair rail, says Sachs.


“Going through a home renovation is a long and complex process. I have been in the architecture business for more than 10 years, and Laura is a very trained and efficient owner’s rep. I highly recommend her,” says the homeowner, who worked with owner’s representative Laura Ianuly on this Greenwich Village townhouse.






The dining room is one of the best spots in the house to soak up some rays. The floor-to-ceiling windowed walls and roof not only shower the space with natural light, but also open up, allowing in fresh air on sunny days. Brick and limestone flooring complete the quaint area.


Forget the microwave. This kitchen boasts a custom-built brick oven. Sachs says the kitchen appliances were designed to be out of direct eyesight from the living room to keep the two adjoining areas separate.

Architecturally, this home is a hybrid between open loft living and a townhouse with a balance of modern and traditional details,” architect HS2 Architecture's Jane Sachs says of the Greenwich Village home she designed. “With our clients, the ultimate goal was to create a comfortable home that wasn’t too formal.” With its spacious 5,000-square-foot floor plan, which spans four floors and a garden level, the home’s comfort and simple sophistication balance the owners’ active lifestyle. Sachs designed the ground floor for casual entertaining, creating a seamless flow between the living room and kitchen, which opens onto the outdoor patio (one of four outdoor areas in the home). They’re the perfect spot to enjoy nature… and the spectacular city views.
