This was one of the first projects of The Brooklyn Home Company (TBHCo), Real Estate Developers, Design & Build General Contractors and Architectural Design Consulting. The 4 story townhouse in center Park Slope was renovated and the owner’s duplex was completely gutted. All the work – from the interior and exterior plans, decoration, built-ins and custom work were designed and built by the family-run cooperative of artists and builders.
The interior/exterior plan, decoration, built-ins and custom work were designed and/or built by TBHCo’s design team. Extra large double hung windows flood the home with natural light. The sculpture above the fireplace was made by TBHCo designer/sculptor Fitzhugh Karol.
A nine foot extension was added to the garden and parlor floors. The library ladder leads to an extra lofted guest room. The original beams were discovered behind the drop ceiling during demolition.
Large built-in shelves were built to house the owner’s various collections.
The kitchen, which is entirely within the new extension, features a Sapele island countertop and a vintage American Standard farm sink. The reclaimed shelving was from a mill in upstate NY. Olive on the counter is one of our mascots.
The bathroom door was taken from a NH sheep barn.
A floor to ceiling panel of frosted glass allows natural light into the bathroom.
Behind the mirrored doors a floor to ceiling built in adds additional drawers and shelving. TBHCo designer Fitzhugh Karol built the 4 poster bed.
Behind the glass partition, stairs lead down to the garden floor.
The stairs are topped with Sapele treads. The hallway leads to a home office, guest room, full bathroom, living room and the private garden.
The guest room was inspired by the sleeping quarters on a ship.
A second living room was added downstairs furnished with all custom furniture. Olive enjoys the sunshine.
