Townhouse Development

Greenwich Village Townhouse I

This new contemporary townhome development, situated in the heart of the charming West Village historic district, offers a luxurious and sophisticated lifestyle. With over 7,000 SF of living space, including a home theater, gym, spa, and 5 bedrooms, this single-family home exudes elegance and comfort. It’s no surprise that it sold pre-completion, before even hitting the market, to a fortunate buyer who recognized the unique opportunity it presented.


M+J Townhouse

This delightful Brooklyn townhouse with ambitious clients and some amazing historical detailing that needed to be preserved.  We worked with the clients to reimagine how this single-family would look and feel – combining a contemporary approach to layout while respecting its more traditional aspects.


E+J Apartment

An ambitious new take gives this apartment renewed life.  Sitting over 450 feet above the street, the clients of this apartment wanted a contemporary remodel that challenged the typical way these older apartments are usually arranged.

LP Apartment

This Flatiron apartment was crafted for a jewelry designer.  As obsessed with details as we are, the client and we worked over every inch of the apartment to transform this into a jewel befitting of its occupants.

B+D Apartment

This small apartment in the London Terrace wanted to rethink its layout 90 years after it was first constructed.  We worked to move the heart of the house into a great room completely change the feel of this little gem – now ready to take on the next century.



A full tear-down and rebuild of this historic Waverly townhouse is an excellent example of a well-executed transitional design style.  Nestled on the historic West Villiage, this landmark protected site needed to balance its historic past while updating itself for a new more contemporary clientele.

OH House

A reimaging of the bottom floor of this upstate getaway needed to create space for guests, parties, and lounging.  We wanted it to blend with the exterior space that is serviced with the existing house all while having its own sense of identity.


APM Monaco

When APM Monaco started its US expansion, they needed a local project manager to coordinate the design and construction at 4 of their new storefronts across the US.  Placing their new locations in some of the most prestigious locations, this was an exacting task.  k-da worked as a development partner, client representative, and project manager for the Seattle, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, and Boston stores.

Penthouse Apartment

A+S Apartment

Perched on the 45th floor of a 1975 building, the A+S Apartment transforms a rigid layout into an open, contemporary haven. With breathtaking views of Downtown Manhattan, the East River, and Brooklyn, this renovation features a relocated kitchen, a spacious dining area, a state-of-the-art gym, and a luxurious primary suite. The design incorporates natural woods, Venetian plaster, and blackened steel, emphasizing clean lines and hidden storage solutions. Through innovative design and expert craftsmanship, the A+S Apartment exemplifies the potential of collaborative design, offering both elegance and functionality.
