Once a grand row house in Stuyvesant Heights, Brooklyn, this building fell victim to the deteriorating socioeconomic conditions of its neighborhood. It was parsed and divided, layered over and smothered. When we came in to what is now a thriving neighborhood, our first task was revealing the beauty of the building’s original craftsmanship. Then we were able to respond to the true nature of the spaces with custom windows, floors, cabinetry and millwork. Most of the appliances are concealed within the cabinetry, save the hand-built French range and custom brass and steel extraction hood above.
