Green Design: Synagogue Turned Into a Modern Penthouse

Green Design: Synagogue Turned Into a Modern Penthouse

Located in East Village, the building in here used to be a synagogue until the 80s and later transformed in five stunning contemporary residences. Its new owners, Dominique Camacho and Gary Hirschkron decided to keep the eco-friendly theme going by making the home as transparent as possible while still ensuring privacy. By using low-impact materials for renovation, the designers revamped the whole interior and added a downstairs lounge, a second-floor library and a third-floor bedroom to the existing structure. With an extensive use of glass and wood that adds a minimalistic touch while blurring the lines between the surroundings and the home itself, it’s the Spacious interiors and the ambient lighting that makes it all the more cozy.  – via GreenPacks
