Project planned overlooking New York Harbor
LABhaus is proud to preview its latest project, located on the ridge of the first Wachtung Mountain overlooking the entirety of New York Harbor, Manhattan, Staten Island, Jersey City, and the lower Hudson Valley.
First and foremost, the project is designed to take full advantage of one of the most dramatic views on the entire East Coast. The major mass of the home is placed at the rear of the building envelope, allowing uninterrupted views from the east, south, and north exposures in each room through large plate-glass windows. Exposures proximate to neighboring structure, on the other hand, are punctuated by long, horizontal windows. These provide ample light, but preserve privacy. The west-facing street facade reflects the modest scale of the neighboring mid-century modern houses. A semi-detached garage clad in a hyper-extended cedar rain-screen both provide an attractive single-story street elevation, and form an inviting private courtyard for the homeowners to enjoy.
