Park Slope, Brooklyn, NY
This project involved the
extensive renovation of a four story town house, previously divided
into four apartments, reconfiguring the building into a two family
residence. The clients, a cabinet maker and a jeweler, would live
on the top three floors, renting out the garden level apartment.
These photos are of the
work in process, as the majority of the finish woodworking is
still in process.
The main floor, seen in
process at right, was completely opened up - removing the typical
division between kitchen and parlor, opening the parlor onto the
stair by installing a new steel beam, and also enlarging the openings
in the south facing exterior wall.
The bedroom floors were
also reconfigured. The master bedroom was re-proportioned to create
a walk - in closet and a small room which would initially be the
babys room and eventually an office. In order to bring more
light into the master bedroom translucent panels were inserted
into the bedroom-bathroom wall.
