Case Study Designer Craig Ellwood’s Landmarked Courtyard Apartments List for $2.85M

By Kathryn M.

The building was originally designed in the ’50s as four interlocking flats for celebrity TV host Roy Maypole.

For the first time in 15 years, Craig Ellwood’s Courtyard Apartments are back on the market. Built between 1952 and ’53, the residence was originally created as four interlocking apartments for celebrity television host and producer Roy Maypole. Ellwood gained international recognition for the complex shortly after its completion, taking home first prize in the Collective Housing category at the São Paulo Art Biennial architecture competition in 1954.

Spanning a total of 3,360 total square feet, the structure was originally built as four two-bedroom units. The current layout comprises one larger, two-bedroom unit and two of the original two-bedroom units.

While each apartment was meticulously maintained throughout the years, the larger unit received a more thorough restoration in 2010 by architects Linda Taalman and Alan Koch. At the time, the then-married couple lived in the space and tracked their revamp process in an exclusive renovation series for Dwell.
