Brooklyn Heights Row House Gets a Bold New Personality

The renovation of this Brooklyn Heights row house features modern elements within a historic context. Glass and steel windows and doors open up the living spaces to light and air, breathing new life into the mid-1800s brick structure.

In the living room, a brushed-brass Lindsey Adelman chandelier is suspended above an A. Rudin sofa and a vintage chair reupholstered in Holly Hunt’s Amazed in Night Magic; the floor lamp is from Ralph Lauren Home. Andy Diaz Hope’s Centering Device #8 is mounted in the corner.

A custom tufted Chesterfield sofa, mahogany table, and Artistic Frame nailhead-trim chair form a dining area off the kitchen. The kitchen features cabinetry and a mahogany island designed by CWB Architects. The countertops are Olympian White Dandy marble and the cooktop is by Wolf.

The bed in the master bedroom is upholstered in Weitzner’s Meander in Quicksilver. In the study, a Curtis Jeré chandelier hangs above Holland & Sherry leather-clad chairs. The bathtub in the “tub room” is sheathed in Nero Marquina marble; the tub filler is from Waterworks.

The home’s bold new personality owe’s much to the transformation created by the rear two story bay window, featuring Steel-Arte windows and doors from Dynamic Architectural Windows & Doors.

The garden-level family room is furnished with an A. Rudin sofa, a Missoni Home rug, and a custom walnut-topped cocktail table. The back patio is accessible from both the public rooms on the parlor floor and the garden-level family room.
