Harlem Townhouse Garden

A beautiful townhouse garden brought indoors by opening up the rear of the building.

The Owners of this Landmarked Harlem Townhouse approached DDA to help them alter their building to allow them to indulge their love of gardening and to truly make the most of that rare Manhattan luxury – green space. The primary tasks in this were to upgrade a dark and awkward Master Suite, improve the connection of both the Master Suite and Kitchen/Dining area to the rear townhouse garden, and design a new rear yard fence for the garden.

DDA opened up a large portion of the rear exterior wall and installed wood and glass doors and an iron deck to blur the line between interior and exterior spaces to create a lush haven intimately connected with their home.
