Case Study

47 Greene St

47 Greene Street stands among landmarked, turn-of-the-century buildings on one of SoHo’s widest cobblestone streets. The intimate lobby is attended by a part-time doorman, and each residence comes with a deeded storage room. This new conversion project is located moments from the destination shops and eateries that make this neighborhood so distinctly iconic. 47 Greene is proudly designed by DXA Studio.

Anticipated Completion:
Floor size
3,487 Sq Ft – 7,610 Sq Ft

Curated Design

47 Green St, a 6-story building, is an extant example of the mixed iron-and-masonry construction of the post-Civil war period. Perimeter masonry loadbearing walls enclose a timber structure. Yellow pine joists span the width of the 48’ wide building and a column line runs down the center of each floor supporting the central beams. In the design, 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.

DXA Studio

“Whilst we were committing to maintaining the characteristics of the loft as much as possible, we were acutely aware that we were designing a home. Introducing the residential scale was important to make the space comfortable and inviting. In both the kitchen and the den, we changed gears. We lowered the ceilings and wrapped the spaces in warm white oak millwork, creating intimate experiences that contrast to those belonging to the grander living areas. The rooms feel separate but connected all at once.”
