PARK SLOPE DUPLEX

This quirky apartment actually had three odd levels, but no closets.  You entered at the top floor through a tiny kitchen.  Then a spiral stair dropped through a low sleep loft on its way to a garden-level studio at bottom.  The awkward rooms were cluttered and squeezed.

We reconfigured the kitchen to widen counters, add storage, and clear the entry.  Now, a hearth, mantel, and countertop all made of soapstone unify the floor.  At the sleep loft, a bold red headboard hides new storage.  Downstairs, we added a new walk-in closet.  And a rolling ladder reaches new cabinets high over the piano.

All the rooms overlook the owner’s garden.  The newly composed space remains a curious sectional puzzle.  But with stuff now tidily stowed, the space serves as a backdrop for the patterns and colors of the owner’s collections.
