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.
The Berkshires House
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, Bob and Cortney renovated this dark dwelling to be a bright, colorful, and peaceful escape.
Greenwich Village Townhouse
A downtown Manhattan power couple with three kids turned to The Novogratz when they wanted to create a fun but functional environment in their townhome. Bob and Cortney kept designs whimsical and bold to bring some joy to their busy schedules. Custom bookshelves for their book collection double as sculptural elements, and graphic wallpaper incorporates a sense of playfulness.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Montauk Surf Shack
The Novogratz designed a high-end surf shack in Montauk for a young family of four avid surfers who had always dreamt of a getaway from their busy, sweltering New York City summers. The Novogratz customized the prefab's blueprints to bring to life the perfect beachside boutique experience - a summer home that is cool, comfortable, and bespoke.
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.

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.
Thompson Street Townhouse
The Novogratz designed a home for their growing family at 24 Thompson Street in NYC, pulling inspiration from the flea markets of Paris. They incorporated anitque elements throughout the home, including a cathedral window, a cherub relief, and an old bar.
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.
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.
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.
