The Castle | Hollywood Hills, CA
The Novogratz bought and renovated what they call the castle - a home in the Hollywood Hills built in 1926 that has belonged to everyone from a silent film star to a silent film director. They kept as many original elements as they could, including the railing of the home's staircase, and opened up the floorplan to allow all 9 of them to live and hang out in the same spaces.
Timber Cove | Sonoma, CA
The Novogratz redesigned Timber Cove, a resort originally designed in 1963 by famed architect Richard Clements Jr., who was inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright's organic architectural style. The Novogratz sought to honor the history of the existing space as well as let the landscape speak for itself.
Hotel Dylan, Woodstock, NY
Designed in 2014 by Bob & Cortney after one of the owners of the Hotel Dylan, Paul Covello, reached out to the couple to rennovate the space. This former truck stop motel was transformed into a hippie chic overnight oasis in Woodstock, NY. Inspired by the legendary Woodstock Music Festival in 1969, The Novogratz created a modern boutique hotel, including 10 guest rooms and a two-story suite, which has been featured in the New York Times.
When a good friend of Bob and Cortney’s told them they were selling a house in Brazil, they were curious. After visting the charming town of Trancoso, they fell in love. They designed a gorgeous, nature filled vacation home, which has become a staple design element in their current work. The Trancoso house has been featured in Conde Nast Travel magazine & Vogue Brazil. Click here for more information and to inquire about renting the house.
Treehouse Trancoso, Brazil
A suggestion from Bob and Cortney’s 7 year old son at the time, Breaker, a treehouse concept was adopted for the family’s vacation home in Trancoso to compete with the surrounding rentals and increase property value. They designed a 400 square foot space surrounding a tree that overlooks the ocean from every angle and is a seamless creation of outdoor shelter. A naturally luxurious space that was crafted from the Trancoso’s local materials, this eucalyptus, tatajuba, and paraju constructed space brings the Novogratz family and guests a true taste of Brazilian living.
Designed in 2008 in Long Branch, New Jersey, The Bungalow Hotel is a 25,000 sf, 24-room boutique hotel, and the first commercial project they designed. It is designed to be chic, but laid-back, with surfer art, wood, and a hip but warm lobby. The Bungalow Hotel was chosen as one of the most chic hotels of the year by Elle Magazine and was also featured in the LA Times.
Country House New England
This house was designed to be a city escape – a place to go when you need a minute to relax with the sound of crickets, and to be reminded what the stars look like. With that in mind, Robert and Cortney renovated this dark dwelling to be a bright, colorful, and peaceful escape. This project was featured in Coastal Living Magazine in 2014 and many other publications.
Gramercy Park Apartment
The Novogratz met Emmy Award-winning producer David Perler in the fall of 2011 when he asked them to redo his 900 sf apartment in the historic Gramercy Park neighborhood of New York City. The prewar building had a ton of character, but it needed to be gutted and redone to open the space and make it a comfortable place to live. The result was a great mixture of David’s collected possessions and new furniture, lighting, & artwork.
Tony Hawk's Mountain Home
An early 1970’s house in Mammoth Mountain, CA, Tony Hawk’s ski house was designed to be a kid-friendly skier’s haven. With pro-skateboarder Tony as an inspiration for the design, it’s no surprise that the house turned out as hip and cutting edge as Tony himself.
Suzanne Vega's Apartment
In a gorgeous pre-war building in the Upper West Side, Susan Vega’s apartment had the perfect bones and furniture collection for the inception of a great project for Bob and Cortney. The apartment was lacking the small details needed to make a home unique. By reorganizing the space, adding a reading nook, and an updated chandelier, the apartment really came to life.
This project marks a turning point in Robert and Cortney’s careers. They had just purchased 4 properties in the Soho neighborhood of Manhattan at the bud of Soho’s transformation. This is one of the homes on that block; the start of something fantastic. As the largest project Bob and Cortney had ever undertaken at this point, they weren’t just transforming a single house, but the character of an entire street. This project was featured in Cookie Magazine, Living Etc., & over 20 other publications.
W Hotel Lulu's
Club Lulus was completed in 2014, and designed to showcase the fantastic art collection curated by Bob and Cortney. The resulting bar-lounge has a sexy British character, bringing something completely innovative to Hoboken, New Jersey. Some of the artists featured in the space are Mario Testino, Albert Watson, and Richard Woods.
Completed in 2013, the Seabrook house is a stunning vacation home on the Washington coast. The Novogratz designed an open floor concept to bring people together with each space building upon the next. Guests can relax in the bright, happy kitchen, socialize around the vintage pool table, enjoy coastal views on the heated porch, and finish the day in one of the wildly unique master suites. This design of this rental is iconic to the Novogratz style. It wouldn’t be complete without curated artworks by Andy Warhol, Ann Carrington and Fernando & Humberto Campana. This home was featured in Living Etc. in May 2014.
The Novogratz redesigned the floor plan of a house in the Hamptons for a client who wanted an open floor plan to accommodate big summer parties. They kept the interiors white to enhance the natural light, and used pops of red and yellow for a classic, modern vibe.
Situated on the water in Bellport, NY, the owner wanted a signature Novogratz eclectic mixture of modern and vintage pieces. Bob and Cortney wanted to bring the outdoors in on this particular space, because the property had such an amazing landscape. Here, they used trees from the property to achieve this goal. This project was featured in O Home, Living Etc. and various other publications.
Fred Segal Store - Santa Monica
Kym Gold, the owner of a great women’s clothing line, Babakul as well as the creator of True Religion, contacted Bob and Cortney to design her first shop located inside the iconic Fred Segal store in Santa Monica. Inspired by the beach and the landscape in LA, they pulled in natural elements to cozy up a large, industrial space.
Palm Beach Cabana
Designed in 2010 in Palm Beach, FL, this small cabana had great bones but was lacking charm, style, and modern comforts. Robert and Cortney worked in collaboration with the client’s architect to create a multifunctional family space that is rustic and casual.

This unit was their chance to design the ultimate bachelor pad, as their client wanted a home in which he could easily entertain four hundred of his closest friends.
