Hang Your Hat - Saturday 9/27 Edition: NYC Parking Garage Remodeled Into Epic Townhouse

By the 1990s, this old coal delivery garage had been replaced by a parking garage with a small residence above it. The people that bought it turned to Turett Collaborative Architects to design a drama-filled townhouse on Leroy Street in New York City’s Greenwich Village.

Taking it back to just the shell, TCA left no detail unnoticed, filling it with everything you could possibly want and more. While they did demolish the original interiors, they were able to re-use some of the materials, like the original structure’s timbers becoming stair treads.
