The first publication to cumulatively address the extent of Stephen B Jacobs Group's robust 50-year practice and 20 year partnership with Andi Pepper Interior Design, Stephen B Jacobs Group Andi Pepper Interior Design offers a largely first-person window into the history and influence of one of New York City's most in influential firrms. Moving from early residential commissions to later large-scale developments, the book highlights such mould-breaking projects as Gansevoort Park, The Edge and the Printing House, which pioneered the now-signature adaptive reuse of rooftop space for leisure within hotel and residential developments in New York City, as well as affordable housing, public and commercial projects, interior design and preservation. From its founding, the practice has been deeply concerned with the preservation of vernacular buildings and the integration of their surrounding historic context. Early work reveals Jacobs' tactical use of generous ceiling heights, so as to introduce additional living areas, such as mezzanines and additional oors. Later projects showcase his innovative reuse of existing historical detailing found in both the brownstones and larger commercial buildings the firrm redeveloped throughout the 1960s and 70s. At the same time, Stephen B Jacobs' training in the Bauhaus tradition manifests within the practice's rigorous approach to planning, construction and detailing, as seen within their most recent award-winning luxury hotel and residential complexes, such as Edge II, Hawthorn Park and the masterful 2013 conversion of the famed Cast Iron District building, 200 Lafayette Street. Peppered with exclusive interviews as well as anecdotes and stories offered by Jacobs himself, this book recounts the full spectrum of Stephen B Jacobs Group and Andi Pepper Interior Design's work to offer a comprehensive yet highly personal insight into one of North America's most in uential practices, both with respect to the immediate context of the New York City metropolitan area and the wider progress of architecture from the 1960s to the present.
