PARK SLOPE BROWNSTONE
For example, we replaced half of the rear wall with steel windows. These look out on a newly landscaped garden, a parlor floor deck, and a new connecting stair.
Given an attic ceiling that sloped down to knee height, we opted to remove its roof, turning this substandard crawl space into an extraordinary outdoor space. Wide glass doors open onto this new roof deck, bringing daylight to the middle of the house. And a new exterior stair links this deck to an upper roof deck with Manhattan views. The resulting house is historically authentic but with a fresh connection to the outdoors.
