This project is an extension the owner’s modern exterior/interior renovation of a split level ranch in Ulster County. The directive of the design is to establish a screened patio and fire pit while defining a more structured approach to the front entry. In the use of cast-in-place board faced architectural/ retaining walls, pavers, ipe garden wall and plantings the hardscape anticipates and develops a relationship between the main house and future guest house. The construction was completed mid-Summer, and has been getting broken in since. We've posted some nice test shots. Keep an eye out for Phase II.
New York, NY
The aim of this project was to update a tired apartment while retaining/reintroducing some of its classic details. The living room received a wall of custom cabinetry, a new fireplace surround and mantle. Access to the bathroom was redirected out of the bedroom through a new arched opening and hallway. Along the hallway is a custom linen closet and pull out hamper unit. The bathroom was completely renovated and expanded to accommodate a custom vanity. The tub was replaced with a walk-in shower. The walls and floors were covered in carrara marble tiles. The hardwood floors were stained and refinished throughout.

This project combined a one bedroom apartment with the clients existing two bedroom apartment. The scope of the renovation was deceptively extensive. The apartments are separated by a concealed pocket door integrated into the white lacquered paneled threshold. The family room incorporates a full height walnut media cabinet adjacent to full height lacquered wall cabinets with built in window bench and storage unit. An office niche with full height custom cabinets is off to one side of the Family room. The existing bathroom was fully renovated and reoriented to be en-suite and incorporates a concealed linen closet.
EBA was commissioned to renovate a 500 sqft pre-war one bedroom apartment in Brooklyn . The scope of work included a complete update of the kitchen and bathroom, including all new floor/wall tiles, cabinets, appliances, and plumbing/light fixtures. The hardwood floors were replaced throughout and custom bench/storage cabinets were installed along the exterior wall of the living room and bedroom.
3A Phase I
EBA gave a tired kitchen a much needed update. The update included custom cabinet refacing, new hardware, countertops, plumbing and light fixtures. A custom full height bulletin board was installed on the exposed end of the existing pantry. A set of three custom benches with felt pads were located along the wall in the dining area. This maximized seating while providing additional storage and minimizing clutter. Because of budget and schedule constraints, a complete renovation was not attainable. EBA worked closely with the client to identify their priorities, and developed a scheme that made best use of the available funds.
This was an preliminary proposal for a single family home on a beautiful sloping site. The intent was to design a "sub-urban loft" with an open plan that made efficient use of a minimal footprint and maximized the spectacular view. Formally the concept is three interlocking volumes stacked-skewered-shifted to respond to the elevated road to the North as well as the significant grade change to the South. The volumes are simply detailed incorporating a minimal material pallet. Varying textures allow the surfaces of the volumes to be animated through out the day by the tracking sun.
Warren Phase II
As a part of Phase II, EBA explored options that formalized a large but barren rooftop patio. The design intent was to develop a series of spaces that broke up the expanse of the patio and allowed for more intimate groups within a larger gathering. The interlocking wood forms take on different functions as they blur the boundaries between individual spaces. The painted steel screening element, provided a bit of privacy and an opportunity to effectively install lighting. Concrete pavers tied the spaces together and provided a durable walking surface.
EBA was brought on to help plan and design a multi-phase renovation of a single family home outside of Boston, MA. The project is currently in Phase I, and EBA is working with the client on a complete kitchen renovation, select cosmetic interior upgrades as well as a removal of an exterior storage addition and deck. The exterior renovation is in preparation for Phase II where a bathroom, mudroom and laundry will be built.
This study was born from an ideas competition for the adaptive reuse of abandoned subway stations around Berlin, Germany. The concept was defined through analog and digital explorations, resulting in a looping feedback of spectator and the spectacle. This loop was deployed on a subway station as a MTV broadcast studio in the commercial hub of Potsdamer Platz. Turning the volume up to eleven on the precedent developed in Times Square NYC. This studio employs spectators as a analog and digital backdrop to the broadcast. Ultimately the studio performs as beacon of youth culture, feeding into the commercial machine in which it is located.

Jay Monahan Center
New York, NY
The Jay Monahan Center was a project spearheaded by Katie Couric in honor of her late husband who died of colon cancer in 1998. She raised over one million dollars to construct a center focused on the education and treatment of gastrointestinal diseases. New York Presbyterian Hospital hired G5A to renovate and existing 4000 sqft office space on their downtown campus. The intent of the design was to develop a comprehensive gastrointestinal center, that treated the body as well as the mind. The aesthetic was to be clean and modern yet inviting to medically fragile patients and their families.
