The Park Slope Townhouse is a relatively narrow, 17-foot-wide house located in Brooklyn’s Park Slope Historic District. The once narrow brick home was completely gutted to welcome a newfound open-plan layout. The house was completely overhauled with new systems, windows, and finishes. A large steel and glass window and door assembly were installed at the rear of the building to allow for plenty of natural light. A raised indoor fireplace adds to the warmth of the kitchen, newly constructed of brick, with a grill within for cooking.
Historic details and hardware were preserved and juxtaposed with modern elements. Striking black accents and brass hardware are highlighted by the mostly white palette. Overall the aim of the project was to lighten up the interior of the house to create a comfortable home for a family of three.
