An original 8,000 square foot Richard Morris Hunt designed carriage house, which was derelict on the interior, was gutted leaving only the facade intact. A new sky lit courtyard was inserted bringing light all the way to the ground floor of the four-story interior, creating a grand, central living space.

All new wood, plaster, stone, and metal detailing was designed to create the atmosphere of a refined Florentine Palazzo for the Italophile owner.

The project received the 2012 Stanford White Award for Residential Renovation and Addition from the Institute of Classical Architecture & Art. Designed by Richard Cameron and Jason Grimes for Ariel, the Art of Building in collaboration with Wright Architects, PLLC.
