Park Slope Townhouse

Brooklyn, New York


What should go, what should remain? We respect landmark properties and give new meaning and life to them. To renovate a historic building is to curate architectural elements in space and time.

We renovated a townhouse in Park Slope that was originally built in 1920 on a road that pre-existed the neighborhood. The building contains a fluid, plaster interior with historic elements floating in fields of white, drawing a sensibility of bold and unsettling spaces, inspired by Stanley Kubrick’s cinematography and the space-age sensibilities of its owners. On the outside, it’s 1920 pretending to be 1850. On the inside, it’s 1965. It’s 1983. It’s 2012. It is a forum for the changing qualities of sunlight on curved walls, occupied by a happy family.
