Brooklyn Heights Addition

We added a 2-story addition to the back of this landmarked, 25-foot wide Brooklyn Heights brownstone. Working in conjunction with designer Elizabeth Cooke-King, the top level of the addition became a large, light-filled kitchen and the bottom level a baby’s room and a sitting area / study for the master bedroom suite. Old brick was used on the exterior surrounding the windows. The black trim and panels are made from an acetylated-wood product that resists rot and does not need to be painted frequently. Inside, the fireplace mantles were replaced with onyx and the staircase to the bottom level was ‘turned’ at the top to make room for a coat closet.
