The Most Beautiful Houses in NYC

Architects are the masters of architecture, and they’re always looking to the future.

But in this city, the future is increasingly dependent on where you live.

The new building:  The home of an architect is a symbol of the designer’s creative vision and commitment to the community.

It’s also a place where we all feel welcome and at home, surrounded by the kind of beauty that makes us feel like we’ve stepped back in time.

We asked designers to think about the design of their homes and see how they would build their future.

This is the result.

“It’s very much a question of the architect,” says Richard K. M. Smith, who designs luxury residences in Manhattan and Brooklyn.

“If I’m a homeowner in Manhattan, I want to build something that’s elegant and functional and comfortable and safe.

If I’m in Brooklyn, I’m going to want to create something that feels like a museum, a place to hold a conference or a family gathering.

But then there’s a place in between.”

“Designers are always looking at the future,” says architect and New York City resident Jonathan Zukerman.

“They want to make something that is elegant and safe and functional.”

“Design is a big thing in our industry,” says Robert E. Brown, an architect who lives in New York.

“It’s a way to tell a story and to make people feel connected.

The problem with that is that we have so much more to tell.” 

 When it comes to housing, it’s a bit like the world of design itself.

“People are interested in the future, and we have to keep building, to make it more livable and accessible and fun,” says Michael Gorman, an urban designer based in New Jersey.

“But that’s not necessarily the right way to build.

We have to think more about what is our future.”

 The first thing to consider when it comes time to design is where you want to live.

The design of a new home is not a matter of the architectural style of the house itself, but the design for the neighborhood around it.

For example, you could have a large, luxurious home in Brooklyn that feels more contemporary, like the kind that would appeal to the tech-savvy crowd, or a small house that could be a cozy, family-friendly place.

A family-oriented house. 

When planning your home, you should look for a balance of size and affordability, says Michael L. Cohen, a New York architect and author of the book Building the Future: How to Build the Most Beautiful Home in New America.

“The more affordable the house, the better.

That’s what the average person would want,” he says.

“And then, the more large, the bigger the house would be.”

The most expensive houses tend to have more space, while smaller houses are more likely to be close to transit, and more likely not to have parking.

“For people who are interested only in size, a large home can be beautiful, but you need to consider the fact that the smaller the house is, the smaller it is in terms of the amount of space it’s gonna take up,” he adds.

The second thing to think long-term about is the type of lifestyle that you want.

The house should be accessible, but not too small. 

There’s a huge emphasis on creating a home that allows people to live together, but that also gives them the freedom to explore the city as a whole, according to John S. Fagan, a professor of urban planning and design at University of Pennsylvania.

“When you build something like a studio or a loft or a two-bedroom, you’re limiting yourself,” he said.

“You’re limiting the possibilities of the city.

You’re limiting what people can do.

The more people you have in your house, you can have more interaction.” 

“You’re creating a place that’s beautiful and functional, and a place people feel welcome,” says Jonathan Zuukerman, an architectural designer based out of New York and Brooklyn and a member of the American Institute of Architects.

“This is a place of connection, where people can gather and have fun.

So, I would design a house that’s spacious and intimate and accessible, and then it would be more expensive and more complicated, but also more beautiful.”

The final piece to consider is the amount that you’re willing to spend.

If you want a larger house that feels bigger than it actually is, then it’s probably not going to be a great place to live, says Zukorman.

 “It depends on the type, size, and style of your home,” he added.

“I would design something that had a lot of character and character could be beautiful
