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.
Chisel & Mouse have produced a stunning sculpture of the front facade, paying a fitting homage to one of New York's most desirable residences.
Each of our architectural sculptures is handmade in our studio in Sussex, England. They are made of strong plaster that has a reassuring weight and smooth, cool feel. Stylish ornaments, gifts or presents that are handmade in Britain and look fabulous on a desk, shelf or wall.

|any chance you might have Washinton DC on your to-do list? I would be interested in a cityscape, or even better the stretch of Pennsylvania AVE from 15th ST to 17 ST which encompasses the White House, US Treasury, and several other buildings.|
