Fort Greene Townhouse modern-home-office

Fort Greene Townhouse

A full gut renovation of a 4-story townhouse in Fort Greene. A main goal was to retain all of the original detail still intact, however, at the same time, give the house a distinctly modern feel. In areas where detail was still substantially intact - the entrance and stair hall, for example - dramatic color and contrasting white trim were used to update a previously dark and ponderous space. The house can be seen as a series of vignettes - spaces of differing design, but of similar design approach - woven together by the central stair. The stair culminates at a large, top floor studio space designed to take best advantage of existing views to Fort Greene Park.

Great way to maximize flow if you like to entertain! Also, this is a wonderful method for bringing in as much natural light as possible. Especially important when you only have windows at the front and back.
