DOCOMOMO NY/TRITour and Lecture

Inside the William Landsberg House

October 14, 2023

As part of Archtober, DOCOMOMO US/NY Tri-State is cosponsoring an open house and talk at the Landsberg House in Port Washington, Long Island, renovated and restored by Stephen Moser Architects. The 1951 house was designed by and for William Landsberg (1915-2013) 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 renovation 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 Stephen Moser Architects 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.
