EAST HARLEM BROWNSTONE
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.
