Park Slope Row House

This 16′-wide Park Slope row house was a crush of tiny rooms and tinier halls.  So we gutted the parlor floor.  And though we cleared away the partitions, we preserved the parquet floor as a map of the old layout.  This left one great room for living, dining, and kitchen, with each space zoned by custom cabinetry.

On the garden floor, sliding walls turn a playroom into a multi-use space.  Opening one tack-board wall reveals a washer/dryer and makes the space a laundry room.  While closing another chalkboard wall divides the space into office and guest room.

And at the top of the house, under a new skylight, our segmented bathroom serves the whole family at once.
