Manhattan

WAVERLY TOWNHOUSE

The new owners of 109 Waverly Place in Manhattan’s West Village knew that gutting a historically significant townhouse would be a complex undertaking. They were admirers of Turett’s townhouse renovations elsewhere in the neighborhood and brought his team on board to convert the multi-unit structure into a single-family home. Turett’s team had extensive experience with… Read more

EAST VILLAGE PENTHOUSE

TCA has had a lot of experience connecting smaller apartments together into a seamless whole, but this adventurous client requested something we’d never seen before. In a newly constructed multi-residential development, in the East Village of NYC, TCA had the opportunity to meet a unique client’s desire to combine two penthouse condos… with a helical… Read more

NYC STUDIO LOFT

The owners of this 520 square foot, three-level studio loft had a few requests for Turett’s design team: use sustainable materials throughout; incorporate an eclectic mix of bright colors and textures; gut everything…but preserve two decorative tiles from the existing bathroom for nostalgic value. TCA drew on its experience with ‘green’ materials to integrate FSC-certified… Read more

HAVEN’S KITCHEN

Haven’s Kitchen is one of TCA’s more recent projects.

The centerpiece of the space was a rich, custom designed showcase crafted of Macassar Ebony. It gave definition to this amorphous space with an orb shape… Read more

LEROY STREET TOWNHOUSE

TCA’s bold, original design created a spacious, airy, and inventive house out of a former garage. The owner’s investment (purchase price and gross cost of the excavation) approximately doubled after the work was completed. A dramatic four-story staircase welcomes visitors as they enter the foyer; walking past, one will encounter a room flooded with natural… Read more

CITY BAKERY

From the moment you first spy City Bakery it is obvious this is not a typical neighborhood bake shop. The bakery’s creator approached TCA with a well-formed vision for a shop that would stand out as unique even on Manhattan’s East 17th Street; Wayne Turett worked closely with the chef/owner to bring that vision to… Read more
