tively simple, painstakingly crafted, and transcending all fashion, the dignified buildings created by Tamarkin Co. highlight the enduring qualities of modernism, as well as founder Cary Tamarkin’s uncompromising vision of timeless design and the highest quality. Tamarkin, a Harvard-graduated architect, founded Tamarkin Co. in 1994 to merge the business of real estate development with the art of architecture. The result is a highly curated portfolio of residential condominium buildings that includes the standard-setting conversions of the warehouses 140 Perry Street and 206 West 17th Street into raw-space loft apartments. TCo.’s new buildings have also garnered acclaim for their design and sensitivity to the urban context. 47 East 91st Street was the first new residential building in Carnegie Hill to be approved by The NYC Landmark’s Preservation Commission in over 50 years. 495 West Street led the wave of new residential development along the West Village waterfront and was the recipient of an American Institute of Architects Honor Award.
On the rare occasion that Tamarkin Co. accepts an architectural design commission, the process is rigorous and the results are impeccable, as evidenced by two recent houses in Shelter Island and Woodstock.
Ranging from challenging conversions of historic structures to carefully considered and beautifully crafted new buildings, Tamarkin Co. residences meld pragmatism and poetry. The quiet modernism that is the company’s signature is subtle, long lasting and widely regarded as the standard-bearer for true luxury.
