GOING ABOVE AND BEYOND

Eco-friendly Apartment Expansion, Optimizing Outdoor Spaces and theDesign Development NYC Personal Touch​​

 

We share your commitment to excellence and dedication to quality, and this June, Design Development NYC is focusing on finding solutions to your every need. We are truly going “above and beyond” and “high and outside” with two of our latest projects, a health-conscious upwards apartment expansion and a rooftop terrace transformation.

A Growing Family Makes an Eco-Friendly Loft Expansion

Rue Magazine featured the apartment in a twenty-page spread that highlights the beauty of this 3,800-square-foot, four-bedroom, four-and-a-half bath duplex.
