An artful townhouse renovation in Cobble Hill

Posted on Tue, 25 Jun 2019 by midcenturyjo

We have been quite the fans of Brooklyn-based architectural and design studio Elizabeth Roberts Architects for many years now (previous posts here). Roberts’ work is considered, authentic and simply stated, beautiful. Nowhere is that more obvious an in this 3 storey townhouse gut renovation and addition. The soaring double height kitchen with its almost spartan luxury, the aesthetically pleasing spiral of the staircase, the juxtaposition of the historic and the new. Love.

How unpractical: how will they take the food from kitchen to dining table? Via the ladder? Beautiful but awkward

If you look closely at the dining room pictures you’ll see a dumb waiter in the left side of the shelves. Helps somewhat in getting the food upstairs. My thought is except for formal dinner parties they probably eat in the kitchen most of the time 🙂

Gorgeous. Clean, modern but with a touch of your great aunts cozy florals. Do you know who made the quilt?
