Brooklyn Heights Brownstone

In this large brownstone addition, period restoration and dynamic modernism join forces. The living room’s coffered ceiling is a historical re-creation that contrasts with the clean lines of the kitchen. ¬†A cut in the parlor floor adds a spatial dimension, while clearing the way for a double-height wall of glass. ¬†Moreover, this fills two floors with sunlight and garden views. Crisp new stairs play against refurbished ornate stairs. And lastly, a laundry chute runs from the bedroom floors to the basement laundry room.
