Suk Design Group will again appear before the city’s Landmarks Preservation Commission to present revised proposals to renovate and expand the rear portion of a private residence in the Greenwich Village Historic District. Located at 267 West 11th Street, the unique property includes a four-story structure with an additional single-story, enclosed structure in the rear courtyard that dates back to the 1930’s.
The commission will again review the architect’s proposed changes to a glass wall at the back of the primary structure and alterations to the secondary house, which drew the most ire at meetings held in January 2019.
From the ground up, the architects have proposed the replacement of the existing glazing system at the rear of the townhouse including the installation of new window mullions. At the upper levels the architects have also designed a new outdoor terrace and a roof deck.
If approved, the single-story house would undergo the most exciting scope of renovation which includes new window systems on all sides of the building and a large skylight to maximize the flow of natural light. Exterior alterations include a restored chimney structure and a grey-hued stucco façade. Sub-grade excavation would create a new cellar level for additional lounge, kitchen, and entertainment space.
The design group is expected to appear before the LPC on March 12, 2019 and expects a positive response from the Commission.
