Carriage House is located in New York and has been renovated by FDM Architects. From the architects “The renovation of this 1880’s carriage house became an exploration of the public and private spaces of a bachelor life in both its perception and reality.
A first floor swimming pool and gym were transformed into a sybaritic space ar once gym and cocktail lounge. The chandelier, sitting group, and stucco wall mediate the dual characteristics. A voile curtain adds a layer the extends of the gym beyond.”

From the architects “The Act II house was design for a couple whose children had grown and left home. The house is an exploration of both how to expand the spatial experience of the typical suburban building lot and of the dual nature of the “empty nester” life.
A two volume organization with the volume oriented perpendicular to one another and connected by a narrow L-shaped circulation element allows for parents and children to occupy the house both as a family and individually.
