Palette Architecture Selected Projects #2

History and Culture of Palette Architecture

Palette Architecture is a New York City based architecture and design firm. They focus on designing signature buildings and spaces that enhance the daily experience of our contemporary lives. Palette’s three founding partners met in their first architecture studio at Columbia University. After working for several years at internationally renowned architecture offices in New York City, they formed Palette Architecture in 2010.
What ties them together is a belief that exceptional design results from mutual respect and the formation of shared values with our clients. The diversity of their staff has contributed to an ability to view their projects through multiple lenses – an attitude that they carry forward as their office grows.
As a younger-generation design practice, they offer an agile and flexible design process. Their design approach centers around their clients’ priorities and values, using them as touchstones over the development of the design. They leverage BIM and cloud services to enhance communication and accessibility of project information.

Palette Architecture Selected Projects

100 Franklin Street

Located in the Tribeca East Historic District on an irregular shaped site created by the extension of Sixth Avenue in 1938, 100 Franklin is two triangular ground-up residential buildings constructed over ground-floor commercial space. The South building at six floors, has three full-floor units and a duplex penthouse with a private roof level and the North building with eight floors has five full-floor units and a duplex penthouse. The client, DDG Partners, acted as designer, developer, and contractor for the project.
The building marries old and new, demonstrating how a modern building can be created in a historic district. The project features a hand-laid brick façade with classically inspired masonry combined with modern architectural detail.

Collector’s House

This historic townhouse located on a street known as Doctor’s Row in Harlem is one of a series of landmarked structures originally designed by William Tuthill, the architect of Carnegie Hall.  The owners, a lawyer and a TV producer, with adult children, took over the entire townhouse to have expanded spaces for living, entertaining and showcasing their extensive collection of art, furniture, books and travel souvenirs.  The project restored the incredible craftsmanship and architectural detail of this Renaissance Revival townhouse that is over 130 years old while also creating open layouts and modern built-ins that improve the flow of light and movement in the space.

Patio | House

Designed for a creative professional and his family, the Patio | House includes two rental units and a duplex owner-apartment.  The clients wished to construct a clean, well-lit, Nordic-Modern home set within the shell of a historic Brooklyn Brownstone.  The clients enjoy hosting gatherings with their design-industry colleagues to discuss and share their ideas.  These discussions often took place in a delightful, little, rectangular, brick patio in the rear yard.  Our design intent was to preserve this patio and bring its quality of intimacy and openness into the body of the house.  By creating an open plan with framed views of the rear, we created a series of connections between the interior and exterior.
