CLASSIC MATERIALS AND METHODS: AN HOMAGE TO OLD NEW YORK
211 Elizabeth Street embraces the architectural vernacular of its historic New York neighborhood-and stands out for its use of traditional materials, handcrafted details and classic design. These are real homes made from real materials in one of New York's last remaining authentic neighborhoods. The celebrated designer architects Roman & Williams have created 15 bespoke homes in an elegant 7 story red brick building on the corner of Elizabeth and Prince streets.
Remaining faithful to the neighborhood's historic materials and scale, the firm designed 211 Elizabeth to blend seamlessly with its surroundings. This deft contextualism is achieved with multiple Roman & Williams flourishes including 7 foot-high black wood windows. "We set the windows back 8 inches and surrounded them with serrated brick," explains Roman & Williams partner, Stephen Alesch. "This echoes the classic architecture of the surrounding homes and also creates a beautiful play of light and shadows inside."
VINTAGE MODERN: ROMAN & WILLIAMS REDEFINE THE FUTURE
Founded in 1999 by Robin Standefer and Stephen Alesch, Roman and Williams Buildings and Interiors is a comprehensive design firm based in New York City. Roman and Williams is the new embodiment of an old model for architectural design firms. Their process is comprehensive and design-intensive.

Roman and Williams is currently working on a wide range projects, including high-end residential projects, new buildings, commercial spaces, hotels, night clubs, and several product lines, including: the renovation of the iconic Royalton Hotel in New York City and the renovation of Plaza South in Miami, both for the Morgans Group; the design of the spa and gymnasium at 40 Mercer Street and the New York Standard Hotel, both for hotelier Andre Balazs; and the Ace Hotel in New York.
PRE-WAR PROPORTION AND FLOW: ROMAN & WILLIAMS DESIGNED INTERIORS
The 15 homes at 211 Elizabeth Street are substantial, comfortable, and

true divided lights and transoms-intersects the living room and dining room.

herringbone parquet, and the baseboards, casings, windows and doors are trimmed
in Roman & Williams' favorite high gloss black oil paint by Fine Paints of Europe.
