Art dealer Christophe Van de Weghe, which specializes in works by Jean-Michel Basquiat, Alexander Calder, Duane Hanson, Andy Warhol, and other luminaries of modern and contemporary art, and his wife, Anne-Gaëlle have acquired a five-story townhouse on a coveted Upper East Side block completed in 1887. When the Van de Weghes purchased the property, it had been in the process of being restored to a single-family residence—an undertaking abandoned by the previous owner.

Classic 19th-century Manhattan townhousem – elegant and so commodious—no wonder it’s the dream of countless space-starved New Yorkers, but just at the first sight … these buildings present a number of idiosyncrasies and challenges. Their typically long, narrow configurations, for one, tend to leave central rooms bereft of sunlight, furthermore to achieve a seamless circulation and flow across multiple floors of this king of building demand more thoughtful solutions than simply installing an elevator.

To accomplish the transformation with efficiency and élan, the couple called on Annabelle Selldorf, an architect known for exquisite, soulful minimalism. The main issue with this project was how to construct a staircase that unites the levels in a graceful and dynamic way – architect devised a sinuous staircase of white oak crowned by an alluring canopy of milk glass configured in a tortoiseshell pattern.

Selldorf also replaced the building’s prewar back façade with floor-to-ceiling sliding glass walls to preserve the sense of openness, accentuating the structure’s striking verticality and flooding the adjacent rooms with sunlight brighten, airy rooms, made them ideally suited to displaying the Van de Weghes’ extraordinary assortment of art. Couple’s friend and countryman Francis D’Haene of D’Apostrophe Design to choose finishes and oversee the furnishings that animate Selldorf’s immaculate interiors, among them a floor-through master suite.
