    This Federalist Era 1823 townhouse is located in a Landmarked district in Soho. Through a surgical renovation, Matthew Baird Architects restored the front façade and period details while rebuilding the entire interior, adding a two-story addition at the garden, which was fully excavated to create a new top-lit gallery below. The glass and steel addition is a modern play on the proportions of the Federalist house; contemporary and traditional details interweave throughout the upper floors, where the seven original mantelpieces and exposed timber joists are complemented by sleek stone bathrooms and reclaimed chestnut floors.
