Designed by the award-winning firm, The Up Studio and built by Plane - Skinnyside will be a new townhouse in Sunnyside. The modern townhouse takes its cue from the growing movement of tiny home living, but builds upwards to create ample floor area on the thin, narrow site. The Up Studio took the typical 20' wide 2-story townhouse, cut it in half and stacked it on itself. The resulting design provides 3 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, and capitalizes on a private roof deck and garden for additional living space.
The modern townhouse interior architecture is primarily designed around a custom wood stairwell that connects the three stories and roof deck in a single gesture. A skylight sits above the stairwell and helps bring natural light into the center of the floor plan. White walls and light wood floors help brighten the narrow home and make it feel wider than it is. Additionally, custom millwork in the living room and primary bedroom provide unique storage solutions without overpowering the space.
In addition to the 1,800sf of living space, the townhouse also includes a garden and roof deck for an additional 800sf of space for private entertaining. The floor-to-ceiling glazing on both sides of the home allows light to travel through at all times of the day, and also creates a line of sight to the terraced greenspace from nearly all spaces in the home.
Bordering Long Island City, Sunnyside is a neighborhood with wonderful restaurants, parks, shopping and is an easy commute to Manhattan.
