Park Slope Brownstone

The owners of this brownstone wanted to add as much natural light as possible. The house is somewhat narrow and the rooms were configured to make it feel even more narrow. We removed walls and opened up the rear facade to increase the amount of glass. A rift-oak transitional niche was built between the living room and kitchen to house the central A/C equipment and provide a small desk area with bulletin board walls. The niche, along with an enlarged opening to the stair hall, improve the long and narrow proportions of the living room. A new wood-burning fireplace adds a central focal point. The bathrooms throughout were re-located or renovated with skylights or windows added whenever possible. A new ipe deck and stair were added in the back as well as new doors and windows for the entire rear facade.
