West Chelsea Triplex Renovation

Utopus Studio as Architects

Located in Manhattan's Chelsea neighborhood, the renovation spans the top three floors of an 1855 townhouse. The existing building plan consists of two units on each level. These were combined to create three open-plan spaces that are connected by a central staircase. The custom fabricated steel staircase climbs from the first levels's entertainment areas, through the private sleeping quarters of the second level, to the meditative terraces on the third level.


Materials Steel structure, brick and concrete blocks, plaster walls and ceilings, wood veneered panels, mdf lacquered panels, clear, frosted and tinted glass panels, wood ceilings and floors, hot-rolled steel stairs and doors, aluminum windows and folding doors, and various interior
