49 Greene Street: Celebrating the Character & Charm of SoHo
Nestled in the landmarked district of SoHo, New York, 49 Greene Street, a 6-story building built in 1886 by HJ. Howard, is an extant example of the mixed iron-and-masonry construction of the post-Civil war period. DXA Studio began work on the building in 2015, converting the interiors into three full-floor condominium units and a triplex Penthouse unit with a rooftop addition and private roof deck.
Our design process began like most of our other projects – studying the history of the area and the building itself – and we wanted to speak to SoHo’s past and the various movements that lent themselves to the creation of the area’s unique character and charm.
