From Harlem Bespoke, a reminder that small buildings must deal with context much more than large buildings that share a block with only two, one, or even zero other buildings: "This townhouse is probably one of the better examples of what a modern contextual building might look like for a brownstone neighborhood. This 2-family house is definitely contemporary in nature but the generous proportions of the windows and the presence of a stoop gives it a classic nuance that helps the building fit in with the immediate block. Everything appears to even visually line up horizontally with the other brownstones on the block but for some reason the building was not built taller which is what most current developers tend to aim for. Another plus is that those facade-piercing air conditioners are not present." Full post here.
