Handmade in Sussex, England, Chisel & Mouse have produced a stunning sculpture of the front facade of the Lescaze House, paying a fitting homage to one of New York's most desirable residences.
In 1933-34 William Lescaze, the revered modernist architect, designed and built his own house in Manhattan. Claimed to be New York's first modernist house, it stands out from its row of Brownstones due to its striking design. White concrete, glass bricks, an absence of ornamentation and its use of strong geometric forms make this house unique.
Lescaze approach to architecture can be seen in every facet of the building. From the external design to the internal layout, his focus on function and practical living are evident.
