This project encompasses the gut renovation of a 1898 townhouse in Brooklyn with magnificent proportions with gracious ceiling heights. The book lined staircase is a sculptural, programmatic element, weaving the project together from the garden level with a guest room, playroom, mudroom and wine cellar, to the main floor featuring an open kitchen and dining room, living room, and glass terrace, to the children's floor with three bedrooms and a 'mayhem room' (including a climbing wall), to the third floor master suite, media room and hidden study, and culminating at a new penthouse where the workout room has large glass walls that open up to front and back gardens. The stair transforms as it rises from a solid element, to a light, minimal open-riser stair with a curved sculptural rail below the skylight. The contemporary art collection complements the modern aesthetic combining neutral tones with rich materials and colors.
