Gut rennovation and 2 story addition on 1890’s row house in Brooklyn’s Red Hook neighborhood. The design of this townhouse sets out to utilize natural, reclaimed, and common materials in a contemporary fashion. Renovation completed on an extremely tight budget with a very hands on approach to testing fabrication methods while the house was under construction. Completed in May 2014
Each prismatic space is defined by a monochrome range of colours and an exclusive combination of materials. A lengthwise promenade through the different spaces starts in the darker tones and gradually goes to brighter tones. Fine wood, natural stone and mosaics of wood, stone or metal are the material elements that are combined in different proportions to define each space.
At entrance, you will see a mirror cube on the right, this is a constrained decoy – on the client’s request a part of the room was allocated for a spacious full-scale walk-in closet. For this voluminous element not to conceal space, it was decorated with mirrors, which allows to visually retain the room dimensions, add light from the reflected window, and is pragmatic: a mirror is a must-be in a room with a walk-in closet.
