Private Residence House Addition; Ann Arbor, Michigan by SimpleTwig™ a r c h i t e c t u r e . l l c; This client wanted a large gathering area to enjoy playing music with family and friends. To keep this space well lit with sunlight, we placed the windows on the corners to help reflect the sunlight off the walls and into the interior space.

57th Street Penthouse Renovation, including greenhouse as seen in this aerial view (note greenhouse), New York, NY by SimpleTwig™ a r c h i t e c t u r e . l l c; It is a unique thing to have a greenhouse on top of any 57th Street building in Manhattan partly because of the high winds and because of zoning approvals, yet we met both these requirements and was able to enlarge this co-op apartment. In the plan view you can see the completed greenhouse, and read this happy clients recommendation (chicken little) on our blog.

 

 

Carroll Gardens
Rooftop Addition, Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn, NY by SimpleTwig™ a r c h i t e c t u r e . l l c; A very tight site and high water table made this renovation and addition a challenge, thus we built up so this young couple could get additional bedrooms and a legal rental apartment.

 

 

Apartment Building
Apartment Building,Chicago, ILby SimpleTwig™ a r c h i t e c t u r e . l l c; What can be done with brutal public housing? Here we show an option, that accepts the massing, adding additional housing of a street/human scale, and giving it all a human character to create a warm and inviting urban environment. Additional images of miscellaneous interior projects. This project winner of an Honorable Mention for Cabrini Housing Competition and was featured on McNeil Leher PBS News Hour. This project highlights that we need not 'tear down', but to 'add to' to make our urban environments more human.

 

 

DeSiano Residence
DeSiano Residence and Rental Apartments, Brooklyn, NY by SimpleTwig™ a r c h i t e c t u r e . l l c; This project takes a townhouse that's falling apart and converts it to an Owner Occupied Townhouse with 2 additional apartments for extra income. We built it so that a future roof top addition would be able to be easily added, as one can see the reinforced ceiling joists in the middle image to support the future apartment addition.
