The listing calls this $26 million historic West Village townhouse a “singular and exceptional offering,” and it’s hard to disagree (h/t Curbed). Brit expat and tech entrepreneur Jos White and his wife Annabel, former director of The Rug Company, bought the house from interior designer James Huniford in 2009 for $7.25 million and embarked on a three-year renovation helmed by notable architect Basil Walter of BWArchitects with interiors by Poonam Khanna. The end result, according to the architects, “fuses past and present into a new, sophisticated 4,000-square-foot home,” which includes a wild rooftop glass atelier (inspired by the Maison de Verre in Paris), 17th-century wood paneling, and a never-ending roster of impressive decor.

Brooklyn Artist Loft, BWArchitects, warehouse conversions

There’s plenty to be said about Brooklyn becoming a brand and the second most expensive place in the country to live. But every once in a while, we stumble across something that still has a bit of the borough’s old school glory.

Take this Brooklyn Artist Loft designed by BWArchitects. The firm’s dramatic conversion of a light manufacturing warehouse to a work/live artist studio juxtaposes the building’s gritty, industrial exterior with warm, light-filled interior spaces.

Simply put, this historic Greenwich Village property, designed by BW Architects, is amazing. A sophisticated balance of design elements that blend the old with the new are incorporated throughout the 4000-square-foot home. And not only is it beautiful, but the 1840s townhome underwent an extensive reconstruction project, completed in 2012, that made it the first townhouse in downtown Manhattan to earn a LEED for Homes Gold rating. And have we mentioned its incredible rooftop office?
