Cutsogeorge Tooman & Allen Architects took great pains to restore the exterior of this stately townhouse on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. “It’s incredibly well done,” a juror said. “I respect the depth of detailing in it.”

Principal Daniel Allen, AIA, and project manager Takushi Yoshida worked from archival photos and sketches gathered by the project’s primary architect, Timothy D. Haynes, AIA. The 1901 Beaux-Arts-style house had received an unfortunate top-floor brick addition before its designation as part of a historic district in 1977. Allen and Yoshida returned the top level to its original, flat limestone façade, with a curved balustrade and a sheet-metal cornice. They reclad a four-story bay in raised-panel, zinc-coated copper. And they worked with Haynes to bring the building’s envelope up to modern energy efficiency and durability standards without compromising its design integrity. “This was a very faithful restoration,” Allen says.
