EAST HARLEM BROWNSTONE

This narrow East Harlem house was a stack of shabby flats before we renovated.  Though the new owners had a modest budget, we gave them a brownstone of elegant simplicity.  We opened the parlor floor into one large space for living, dining, and kitchen.

We turned the narrow hall at the top floor into a sunny playroom.  Around this skylit space, we arrayed small sleeping rooms, one for each child.  Between them, a segmented bathroom serves multiple users at once.

Lastly, throughout the house, we used green materials–from dark-stained fiberboard floors to recycled blue jeans for insulation.
