A Neo-Modern Townhouse
One of our landmark projects, this gut renovation of a Park Slope townhouse required solving a few creative challenges: keeping the separation between four different units intact, while making each one feel open and considered, as well as bringing a modern country house sensibility to a busy Brooklyn street. For a sense of spaciousness, we installed wide, six-inch, white-painted pine plank floors and refreshed original exposed wood beams in the main living spaces. We also sourced a reclaimed door for the owner’s duplex from their family farm in New Hampshire. Ingenious storage solutions, like a sleeping loft tucked above the central space and floor-to-ceiling cabinetry, help to make the most of the square footage. Mirror-fronted cabinets in the main bedroom and a wall of windows in the kitchen maximize brightness. A nine-foot extension of the first two floors created additional room for an open kitchen, designed around a central wood counter that doubles as a cozy dining area. Sculptural work reappears throughout the townhouse, from a carved four-poster bed to an abstract installation above the fireplace. The results have been featured in New York Magazine, Design Sponge, The Selby and Food & Wine, among others.
