Project Description

DRPILLA provided structural engineering design for renovations to this existing 1827 federal row house in the West Village. The structure received a new two-story rear yard addition that extends from the lowered basement level with a terraced roof at the second level.

Our work also featured a new exterior courtyard with compliments new masonry stairs and a retaining wall.

A West Village Revival

This landmarked West Village townhouse underwent a complete renovation and expansion. Significant structural work included a new roofing system, new floor framing on the second floor to maximize headroom and clear out vertical elements to create an open floor plan, as well as a new spacious courtyard and area way in the rear yard.

Exterior Façade Modifications

Modifications of the rear exterior facade accommodate large openings while the upper portion was rebuilt to align properly with the new roof construction. Underpinning of the front façade was necessary to properly support the structure on reconstituted footings.
