140 Perry Street

This four-story 25,500 square foot warehouse building, originally built in 1920 as a livery stable, is located in the heart of Greenwich Village. TCo. purchased the building in 1995 and created eight raw-space condominium residences ranging in size from 2,000 to 4,000 square feet. This novel approach allowed purchasers the ability to customize their apartment layouts to suit their individual program needs and stylistic sensibilities.

The building was completely renovated to include a new lobby, circulation core, and multiple plumbing and mechanical risers. The muscular concrete structure became an important architectural feature of the interior of the restored building while changes to the exterior were kept minimal to reflect the original design intent. Two new penthouse units were set back from the street façade to respect the scale and character of the historic neighborhood.

140 Perry Street is the recipient of an honor award from the Society of American Registered Architects and has been widely credited for bringing raw-space into vogue in New York City.

495 West Street

The pioneering 35,000 square foot new construction at 495 West Street, between Jane and West Twelfth Streets, foresaw the transformation of the Hudson River waterfront into Manhattan’s new Gold Coast. The eleven-story, nine-unit condominium loft building consists of seven full-floor residences and two duplex penthouses, each with spectacular uninterrupted panoramic views of
the water and ranging in size from 2,000 to 4,700 square feet.

Forty-eight foot long ribbons of industrial steel windows and alternating bands of corbelled bricks contribute to the building’s striking presence along the waterfront while tying the building back to its maritime warehouse roots. The open raw-space interiors reveal the robust concrete superstructure of the building and allowed purchasers the flexibility to create their own layouts.

495 West Street was honored with an award from the American Institute of Architects in 2001 and has been cited in numerous publications as a trend-setter along the revitalized Hudson River waterfront.

206 West 17th Street

Formerly the warehouse and administrative headquarters of Barney’s department store, 206 West 17th Street is a twelve-story, 72,000 square foot classic Chelsea loft building originally built in 1910. In 1997, TCo. purchased the building and implemented an adaptive re-use that converted the commercial spaces into eleven 6,000 square foot raw-space residential condominium lofts.

The gut renovation of the building yielded a scale of living in Chelsea that was previously unavailable. The expansive spaces provided a blank canvas intended to appeal to the creative sensibility of the Chelsea neighborhood, currently the epicenter of the contemporary art world. The building’s voluminous raw interiors, maximum exposure to daylight, and structural clarity have attracted some of the most prominent artists and creative professionals in the world.

47 East 91st Street

In 1999 TCo. purchased the air-rights above an existing one-story Citibank in Carnegie Hill to construct a new apartment tower above the operating bank. The resulting ten-story, 45,000 square foot building is composed of seven full-floor, 4,000 square foot apartments and a 6,000 square foot duplex penthouse rising above the single-story base.

The elegantly composed exterior is a modern interpretation of the classic Upper East side apartment houses that line Park Avenue and Fifth Avenue. Buff- colored sand-cast bricks are used for the primary facades with rusticated Indiana limestone detailing at the base and steel casement windows are used throughout. Richly crafted interiors include white-oak herringbone floors, plaster moldings and oil-rubbed bronze hardware.

47 East 91st Street is the first new residential building to be approved by the New York City Landmarks Commission in Carnegie Hill in over 50 years. The finished spaces commanded the highest-ever per-square-foot prices for the neighborhood.

397 West 12st Street

Located just steps from the Hudson River, 397 West 12th Street is one of the premier residential addresses in the Far West Village, one of New York City’s most desirable neighborhoods. This new ten-story building will consist of just five dramatic “raw-space” residences that are unprecedented in scale, ranging in size from 3,000 to 6,500 square feet.

The building is designed as a clean and elegant architectural statement with a hand-laid Roman brick façade accented by expanses of industrial steel windows. Punctuating the monumental volume are generous south-facing outdoor loggias which offer river views.

397 West 12th Street combines the best of two worlds – the privacy and space of elegant townhouse living, and the services and security of apartment living to form one of the most anticipated new projects to be realized in downtown New York.

456 West 19th Street

This new 55,000 square foot, eleven-story condominium building is located at the epicenter of the dynamic West Chelsea art gallery district and at the foot of the exciting Highline Park. The building is composed of twenty-two duplex residences. Every apartment features double-height ceilings and open floor plans ranging in size from 1,100 to 3,000 square feet. There are four spectacular penthouses, each with multiple private outdoor spaces.

The rectilinear black brick base contrasts with sensuously curving upper balconies that mirror the waves of the nearby Hudson River and recall the classic modern industrial architecture of the neighborhood. The apartments of 456 West 19th Street are bold studies in geometry and volume. Interiors feature dramatic expanses of industrial steel windows and a refined, understated material palette infuses warmth into the open floor plans.

456 West 19th Street is the first Tamarkin Co. building registered for LEED certification.

Shelter Island

A simple wooden box perched on the dunes of Shelter Island defines this modest 2,800 square foot weekend home for a family of four. The house gently hovers above the natural terrain, positioned to take advantage of beautiful southwest water views, constant breezes and breath-taking sunsets. Inspired by traditional Japanese construction, the building proudly expresses its post-and-beam construction. A covered outdoor breezeway separating sleeping and living areas encourages a casual, holiday atmosphere.

The house is constructed entirely of responsibly harvested old-growth cypress wood, industrial steel windows, and radiant-heated polished concrete floors. The landscape, designed with Edwina Vongal, is left in its natural state as if the house were dropped onto the dune, and the interiors, designed with Suzanne Shaker, are spare and thoughtful with built-in furniture and cabinetry throughout.

Woodstock

This 4,500 square foot weekend house for a family of five is organized around a landscaped central courtyard. The 14-acre site features breathtaking views of the surrounding Catskill mountains, evergreen forest, agricultural fields and open lawn. Unbroken planes of locally quarried rubble-stone walls root the house firmly into this diverse landscape.

The house is separated into two wings connected by a glazed entryway that distinctly defines sleeping quarters and living spaces. Interiors are simple, elemental and generous. Dramatic floor-to-ceiling glass walls in the living spaces open toward the view to the north and the courtyard to the south. A natural palette of cypress wood cladding, steel windows, and natural-cleft black slate allow the colors of the landscape to saturate the space. A commitment to designing according to sustainable principles is evidenced by careful attention to building orientation and sunlight, thermal mass, and energy efficiency.

Firm

Deceptively 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.
