Ft. Greene Brownstone

From the street, this project is a picture-perfect restored brownstone.  We carefully rebuilt the stoop with new cast-iron balusters and replaced the lost stone ledges and window ornament.
Inside, though, we packed the house with spatial surprises.  The kitchen overlooks a double-height living room with a two-story wall of shelves.  The glass rear wall retracts to open the house to the garden. A high catwalk leads to a children’s reading nook with a window seat perched over the garden.  We hid the powder room halfway up a stair landing.  A stair made of a folded sheet of perf steel leads to the basement.  A walkable skylight turns the cellar into a serene home gym.  And reclaimed heart pine flooring runs up the walls to screen off the master tub and vanity.
