A Brooklyn row house

Posted on Tue, 30 Jun 2015 by KiM

I seem to be finding lots of incredible renovations in New York lately. This Cobble Hill (Brooklyn) row house is a total dream, having undergone a serious makeover by architect Lorraine Bonaventura. Never mind how glorious this entire structure is, LOOK AT THOSE ORIGINAL WOOD FLOORS!!! YES!!! This row house for a busy family in Cobble Hill underwent a complete transformation over two years. Every system and surface was replaced, the structure stabilized and reinforced. The house was altered from a four family to a two family residence, a triplex with two terraces and a two bedroom apartment below. The clients are both designers and participated in design decisions throughout the process. Wherever possible, we used original materials: flooring, stair balusters and newel posts, supplementing them with vintage fixtures and antique mantels. These vintage materials contrast with an open, clean and modern space. (Photos: Houzz)

Do lazy families ever renovate their homes? Why is it always the busy families?
