The Tile House | New York

The Tile House was the home of Raphael Guastavino Jr. from 1914 until his death in 1950. It was here the Rafael Jr. would experiment with different glazing and firing techniques in the onsite detached garage that stands today. The Mediterranean influenced house is an outstanding example of the work of Rafael Guastavino Jr. at the height of his career in partnership with prominent architect Henry Hornbostel. The Bay Shore residence is a showcase of the intricate work of the Guastavino legacy and the house retains a very high level of historic integrity.
