This modern single-family home is built atop the palisades, overlooking the Hudson River and Manhattan. The design consists of four main forms; porcelain box, glass boxes, metal roof/facade and concrete stair. The porcelain box takes the shape of the existing square foundation and holds 3 full floors of living space and a loft with a large sliding door to a roof-deck with 180 degree views of New York City. The glass boxes are aluminum clad projections with windows that intersect the porcelain box at the corners of the structure with the greatest views of the city. In the master bedroom and kitchen/ dining area the floor to ceiling windows face south towards midtown while the smaller box faces north east and is positioned in the master bath to give views directly towards the George Washington Bridge. The metal roof/facade folds over the porcelain box to provide cover over the deck and entry way and is positioned to emphasize direction towards the city. The concrete stair is also formed to frame a view of the river landscape, while entering the home; the tall board formed concrete walls on either side of the stair blocks any view of the suburban street and brings attention to the entry. The interior is a mixture of minimalist forms with warm textures. The living areas are separated with the minimum amount of walls and structure needed to support the floors above and provide storage and privacy where granted. The central stair is opened from first floor all the way to the roof structure where a large square skylight brings indirect sunlight into the interior core.

Approved! The City of New Brunswick's Zoning Board of Adjustments unanimously approved our adaptive re-use 12-unit apartment building. Neilson Crossings will feature 6 2-bedroom units and 6 one-bedroom studio lofts with private terraces (the added glass structure on the top). We are excited to be apart of New Brunswick's future while preserving its history. ⠀
Designing new homes is an rsmannino favorite. Twin gables frame the oversized curved portico creating a welcoming entrance.
We love natural materials! There is nothing more Hampton style than cedar shingles and restrained white trim work. Natural stones and a summertime entertaining area makes this a classic Hampton home.
We don’t do a lot of speculative homes, but this project from last year was particular fun for us. The feeling of open space in this home is abundant, and it was exciting to take on a new challenge.
We just love the look of white and wood - it’s such a clean, simple and fantastically stylish palette. Sometimes the simplest color choices are the most impactful. The floor to ceiling window wall will flood this space with beautiful natural lighting.
As architects, sometimes your best work doesn’t always see the light of day. Unfortunately, our first modern addition project will not be built, but we are still very proud of it. We think the design represented the meeting of old and new, and expressed the very best elements of creative architecture. The good news is the client will be focusing on creating an interior gut renovation, so we look forward to starting their next project.
Our clients wanted to transform their builders Victorian to a craftsman style home. What do you think of the transformation?
We’re moving along nicely on the framing of our Cliffside Park contemporary home.
We can’t wait to wrap this home up. It’s going to be a unique home on a spectacular street.
There’s almost nothing more satisfying than new clapboard siding. We installed mahogany floors and a pine beadboard tongue & groove ceiling to accent the lovely new blue clapboard of this home. It created such an elevated traditional look.
A full gut reno in Hoboken transformed into a modern chef’s kitchen. The full slab quartz backsplash adds a clean contemporary look to the space - a beautiful feature and statement piece.
A perfect view from the family room into the open concept kitchen. Custom gray stained floors amplify the gray toned theme of the home.

Great curb appeal is always a good thing. This shingle style home with symmetrical double gable, eyebrow dormer, and paneling front entry is both welcoming and stunning.
An exposed wood beam, marble island, shaker cabinets and custom range hood transform this kitchen into a modern chef’s dream. Such great contrast between the white countertops and dark tongue and groove flooring.

A variety of elements create a uniquely modern and sophisticated look. Stone, cedar and stucco work together to bring out the best in each other.

There are few things that are better than custom wood countertops. But these concrete countertops formed to look like real live edge wood may be one of them. What a great way to create a soft and subtle look.
