New addition and garage, both with loft space.

Featured in House Beautiful in April of 1966, this house was designed “to extract the last bit of satisfaction out of its location and lot”, says James Marston Fitch*, a professor of Architecture at Columbia University who designed and built said house for himself.

In 2017, Michael Shilale Architects, LLP (MSA) was given the opportunity to oversee a new addition on the home. The addition involves the creation of a loft space, which holds two bedrooms, and a laundry, all connected by a spiral staircase. The project also includes a garage addition with its’ own loft space.
