NEWARK, DE — Land- mark Science & Engineer- ing announced the hiring

ing a single family home in Bronxville. The existing ranch house was one of the last architectural holdovers in this prestigious commuter- friendly suburb. “We added one story and changed almost nothing to the exterior at curb side,” said Kratchman. “Even the windows and exterior fac- ing were left as is. The home now fits within the context in which it is situated, which it never did before.” SKAPC’s design for a town- house on Manhattan’s Upper East Side – which involved adding a three-story vertical addition to an existing three- story storefront with apart- ments above – completely transformed the property. Kratchman initially recom- mended a brick structure to mirror neighboring buildings. “However, the owner is in the stone business and wanted the structure to have the grandeur of residences on up- per Madison Ave.” The French limestone façade, dramatic entrance, mahogany windows and custom metal sidewalk fence add to the exclusivity of the final result: an elegant uptown mansion home. “With its 20’ x 100’ foot- print, the property’s unique dimensions made this project particularly challenging,” said Kratchman. “Sometimes there is truly nowhere to go but up.” MAREJ

SKAPC’s residential conver- sion of a light industrial/com- mercial building in Murray Hill required careful thinking about the mechanical systems for the new units. “The build- ing on East 36th Street was over-built per zoning require- ments and the roofs were valu- able common amenity spaces,” noted Kratchman. “We created a mechanical room in each unit and placed the A/C and heating units on floor stand - ing mounts with tenant and handyman access.” The me- chanical floor area was then subtracted from the available floor area, aggregated and made available for a future penthouse addition. Creating a Fit with Exterior Architecture No matter how new or old a building is, the impact of an addition or enlargement on the surrounding neighborhood must always be a key consid- eration. The appearance from far away, close up at street level, and from the roof tops of other buildings is fundamental to the design strategy. Any or all of these viewpoints can influence whether the enlarge - ment should match or contrast with its base as well as fit with the architectural style of the structures around it. Creating a seamless blend of old and new proved to be the ideal solution for expand-
