Join us for an open house and talk at the William Landsberg home in Port Washington, Long Island, renovated and restored by Stephen Moser Architects. The 1951 house was designed by and for Landsberg, who studied at Harvard University with Marcel Breuer and later worked for him. In 1956, Landsberg established his own architecture practice, gaining regional fame for his Bauhaus-inspired designs.

The architect’s challenge was to take a beautiful piece of mid-century modern architecture and to respectfully but creatively integrate the design elements of a contemporary Japanese-American lifestyle. The centerpiece of the renovation was the reconfiguration of the kitchen in the middle of the house. Henrybuilt collaborated with SMA and the clients to create a contemporary kitchen in the spirit of Landsberg’s original design, while updating it for modern-day performance and embracing the clients Japanese-style cooking and serving.

The tour will be led by Stephen Moser, Principal SMA & Julianna Morais, VP Design Henrybuilt and is organized in partnership with Docomomo US/New York Tri-State and Archtober.

Free, advance registration required.

This event is part of Docomomo US Tour Day 2023.
