Complete Renovation of a 4-story Romanesque Revival House

Complete Renovation of a 4-story Romanesque Revival House (3)

CWB Architects in collaboration with designer Tamara Eaton have redesigned Park Slope Lighthouse, a Romanesque Revival House located in Brooklyn, New York.

Description by CWB Architects: This project entailed the complete renovation of a 4-story Romanesque Revival row house in Park Slope. The building, at some point in its past, had been converted from a single-family to a multi-family residence and the new owner wanted to restore the home back to the original configuration.

The existing details were mostly intact at the parlor floor so a portion was salvaged and restored within the front parlor room, a space which serves as a combination formal living/dining space. The rest of the house was treated with a more modern language. An existing extension was replaced with a new, full-width extension providing a half-level between parlor and garden floors. This “split-level” zone with large floor to ceiling windows provides a direct connection from the kitchen to the garden, as well as between the kitchen and family room below.

The cabinetry throughout is custom. The antique hutch in the kitchen was purchased by the owner and designed to fit within a paneled wall concealing the refrigerator and pantry cabinets at either side. Interior Designer Tamara Eaton worked with the clients to select the art, hardware, & wallpaper throughout as well as design custom furniture pieces unique to the space.
