Tribeca Duplex Penthouse

OCV designed this penthouse addition as a duplex that tops off a historic Tribeca building. This luxurious residence spans the depth of an entire NYC block and provides ample room for four bedrooms and three bathrooms on the lower level, while the upper level features a large light-flooded eat-in kitchen, separate dining area and bathroom, and a living room and office both with adjacent terraces to complete the North and South facing ends.

Tribeca Residence

The design of this spacious Tribeca loft residence takes advantage of large windows on two exposures. It features outsized living spaces, restored cast iron columns and refurbished timber beams.

St. Pete Beach

This three level, 4,000 square foot beach house is located on a canal off the Gulf of Mexico in St. Pete Beach, Florida.

The hurricane resistant concrete construction is raised above the FEMA flood plain, allowing for a covered poolside patio with living spaces and generous decks on the upper two floors and roof.

Punta Gorda Residence

This 5,500 square foot canal-side residence in Punta Gorda, FL evokes the local Spanish Colonial vernacular style with its terra-cotta roof tiles and grand archways.

An open floor plan blurs the boundaries between interior and exterior spaces. Large glass expanses frame views from balcony to open living/dining area to the pool and yard beyond, connecting this active family to their boat dock on the waterways of the Gulf of Mexico.

West Broadway Lofts

This restoration and renovation transformed an early 20th Century manufacturing building into four luxury lofts and a duplex penthouse in one of the Tribeca Landmark Districts in New York.

Exposed brick, preserved wood beams and lacquered steel columns contrast with highly polished details such as glass tiles and doors, making the space fresh and light.

Warren Street Duplex Penthouse

This luxurious duplex penthouse tops an early 20th Century manufacturing building on Warren Street. Because the building lies in one of the Tribeca Landmark Districts in New York, OCV’s design had to meet with Landmarks Commission approval.

To create the duplex a new floor was added to the building, resulting in an open and opulent unit. High ceilings, glass flooring, and large windows and skylights flood the interior in natural light. Exposed brick walls preserve the rustic loft feel while highly polished details make the space fresh and light.

The Raleigh

This small project for a newlywed couple reconfigured and modernized an antiquated apartment in the former Raleigh Hotel on Manhattan’s Upper West Side.

OCV transformed a carved up three-bedroom unit into a roomier two-bedroom with an open living room and kitchen. The couple worked closely with OCV to create a balanced blend of contemporary and turn-of-the-century that suited their taste and lifestyle.

Harlem Residence

This residence in Harlem is located near St. Nicholas Park. The historic brownstone was both restored and renovated after suffering from fire and subsequent water damage.

Details were meticulously restored to their original condition and the entire brownstone was upgraded with:
-new plumbing and electrical services
-a central air conditioning system
-recessed lighting
-hardwired with a sound system on the first floor
-wireless ethernet throughout

Degraw Street Residence

This four-story, early 20th Century brownstone saw the renovation and extension of the owner’s duplex on the first two levels. A ground floor expansion of the rear resulted in an enlarged master suite and an additional bedroom. Above it, a grand room gives way to a terrace.

Existing historic millwork and details were seamlessly extended into the new spaces and structural damage that was revealed during construction was rehabilitated.

West Broadway Loft

This three bedroom, three bath dwelling in Manhattan’s historic Tribeca district places the ease of apartment living into a rugged formerly commercial loft.

Contrasting materials such as glass doors and exposed brick play off one another to bring warmth to a clean contemporary design.
