Here

I just want to be here. Oh I also want to be glamorous and rich and as young as I was in the 80s. You may think it is a decade that taste forgot and how on earth would we want it back but then along comes a room that has its design zeitgeist so firmly in that era and it's love at first sight.

A Brooklyn rowhouse for booklovers and cats 

Most of you will know why I wanted to share this post with you. Being a cat mom to many, it's a dream of mine to have a house that coordinates some designs for the cats within the architecture. Design and architecture firm Barker Freeman was asked to convert this Brooklyn rowhouse into a series of lively, light-filled spaces and to provide accommodations for the homeowners two shy but inquisitive cats — including ways for the cats to slip away from unexpected guests. My ferals would totally appreciate that, and they would love this home as much as I would. 

I must point out the fact that the bookshelf wall not only has the top accessible to the cats but they can get up there via shelves that project to create invisible steps.

11ft wide family home

What do you do when you and the kids have outgrown your 11ft (3.3m) wide Brooklyn row house? What do you do when you love where you live and don't want to move further out to get that valuable space you need? Why you extend up and down but do it cleverly, making effective yet frugal use of the space. If the result is "a home that is not just larger, but livelier" then I guess you and the kids will love living in your special piece of Brooklyn. By Office of Architecture.
