Duane Street Duplex is a stunning contemporary home renovation completed by architecture studio wUNDERground, located in the heart of TriBeCa, New York. The family home is comprised of two adjacent three bedroom apartments boasting stunning 18 foot arched windows and serene park views. The downtown family purchased the apartments amid a developer’s building renovation.

To synthesize 4,200 square feet of real estate, the spaces were rescaled and modified to create a custom loft home. Fixtures, finishes, and details were all altered from the developer’s standard to accommodate the owners’ modern tastes.

We worked on site with the developer’s builders to incorporate the primary changes, then engaged specialty contractors to complete the space. We dedicated extensive attention to resolving all of the unique conditions resulting from the exposed irregular structural grid and complex conversion infrastructure.

After multiple stages of renovation, this unique loft evolved into a truly stunning modern home, complete with custom millwork, centralized control systems, and specialty details throughout.
