Park Slope Row House

This 16′-wide Park Slope row house was a crush of tiny rooms and tinier halls. First, we cleared away the parlor floor partitions, but we preserved the parquet floor as a map of the old layout.  This left one great room for living, dining, and kitchen functions, each zoned by custom cabinetry.  Under a new skylight, we segmented the main bathroom for multiple users. Lastly, the garden-floor playroom serves double duty.  One sliding tack board wall hides the laundry.  Whereas, another sliding chalkboard wall divides office and guest room.
