W.12th Street Triplex Residence Test

[masterslider id=”1″]

Description

This duplex renovation, located in the West Village, is a work-in-progress project in collaboration with Tentwenty Architects. The client had specific design ideas for the residential space and worked closely with the Architect and MRTA to fine-tune all the details in the scope of work, which includes new partitions and spaces, custom millwork, new stairs and balusters, and a completely customized master bathroom with a steam system in the shower. Partitions on the lower floor were demolished, bringing in more light and opening up the space. The upper floor functions as the Master Bedroom + Bathroom + Study. Extensive plumbing work was necessary to accommodate the new wet space for the bathroom. It was important to properly waterproof the bathroom as the client wanted the shower to double as a steam room. For both floors, functional spaced were rearranged to help with the flow of both floor plans. We created refined shop drawings for all millwork, custom fabricated and installed by our team. The detailing found in the millwork for the Kitchen Island and the Banquette showcases the fine quality which MRTA delivers in every project.

• Removed sight blocking partitions on the lower floor while maintaining the structural integrity of the building
• Custom shop drawings for the millwork in the kitchen and living area on the lower floor
• Custom fabricated Kitchen Island and Banquette

Yamaguchi-Carey Residence

Location:

East 7th Street

New York, NY

Year:

2007

Description

This project, located in New York’s East Village, was a remodel of a partitioned 1,100 sq foot loft space. The intention of the Architect was to create an open space where floor to ceiling partitions were avoided. MRTA was brought on this project as a General Contractor. Our expertise as design/build professionals allowed us to resolve design intent with the limitation and realities of materials and construction. Our input resulted in practical solutions for further defining the Architect’s intent in the special concept of having delineated individual spaces in the apartment while preserving the unit’s openness. Curtains would act as privacy divisions when needed. Examples of MRTA’s design/build influence can be seen in the black tempered sliding glass partitions that delineate the bedroom area, the custom made lavatory corner-door, millwork detailing and choice of cabinetry hardware. It can also be seen in the structural design of the kitchen cabinetry wall connection to the ceiling and bathroom tiling details.

Services

• Refinishing of wood floors
• Bedroom and kitchen spaces reconfigured to the center surrounded with curtains and free circulation
• Bar kitchen with custom walnut and oak millwork
• Stainless steel high-end appliances retrofitted into millwork

Malton Residence

Location:

Jane Street

Manhattan, New York

Year:

2007

Description

The Malton Residence located in New York’s West Village was a complete renovation that required insight and diligence.  The central focus of this project was to successfully connect the three levels of the apartment with a sculptural staircase. In achieving this goal a number of unique challenges presented themselves. The existing wood beams of the second floor and roof needed to be exposed and reinforced with steel plates across into the masonry bearing wall, and around the enlarged floor openings. The fabrication of the stairway posed considerable design and structural challenges, ultimately resulting in the interviewing of approximately thirty-five different metal fabricators. It took great effort to finally select a fabricator with the expertise to properly create a design with within a set budget. The bulkhead was configured with the endorsement from project architect to allow for proper weatherization and optimal light.

Services

• Glass bulkhead at new woof roof deck functioning as a light well into the stair
• New custom staircase with oak treads, stainless steel railing & laminated glass panels
• New wide plank oak wood floors with leveling
• Study room with custom millwork and lacquer wood doors folding for open/privacy function
• Master Bedroom with daylight clerestory translucent glass window
• Bathroom with glass tiles and Italian limestone
• Sliding doors at bathrooms
• Kitchen with walnut custom millwork
• Structural reinforcing of beams around the staircase and at the roof

Description

This renovation assignment was for the remodel of a Manhattan architect’s home office. Having seen firsthand the results delivered by MRTA, the firm’s principal architect and founder selected MRTA for renovations of his personal space.
From the existing build environment, MRTA worked closely with the owner /architect to create a place where current conditions worked in conjunction with the existing/new artwork, furnishings, custom cabinetry and lighting. The home office was adjoining a dressing room and a bathroom. Much of the project focused on the fabrication of custom made bookcases, shelves and furniture designed by the architect. MRTA patiently worked through the architect’s revision process contributing design input and providing shop drawings for the proposed design. MRTA also custom fabricated a unique asymmetrical mantle for the fireplace in the office. Our expertise allowed us to navigate the unique challenges presented by the existing construction and design of this site which resides landmark Classical Beaux-Art building constructed in 1903.
