Century-old bones and clean white walls frame the well-proportioned interior spaces of this warm, sophisticated two-bedroom loft in Greenwich Village, the result of a recent gut renovation by the architect-owner. John Berg of BergDesign Architecture, with his wife Jennifer Desmond, purchased the sunny downtown co-op at 250 Mercer Street for $1.5 million in May of 2013, two years and an impressive renovation ago. The bright high-floor unit is now on the market for $2.9 million.
We’ve featured some of the architect’s projects, and this apartment’s renovation is detailed on the BergDesign site, with the imperative of keeping “three priorities: durability, casual living and contrasting rich materials” for a family with small children in mind.

BergDesign Architecture has really outdone itself this time with their latest creation, an “upside down house” in Montauk. Designed with the ocean in mind, this single family residence conjures up images of beach houses while maintaining the sophistication and innovation we’ve come to expect from the studio.

A multi-disciplinary event/performance space, retail store, and hidden bar all in one–we must be in Williamsburg.
Located at 94 Wythe Avenue, in a slower-to-gentrify, industrial section of the neighborhood, this outpost of Kinfolk Studios was transformed by BergDesign Architecture from a mechanics garage into a space that feels like “it was designed for an off-the-grid Pacific Northwest hippy mathematician” by adding wood-clad geodesic dome shell structures to divide the space into separate functions.
