This Chelsea apartment occupies the top floor of one of a series of brick rowhouses that were joined together to create a larger building. In the existing layout, the street frontage of the unit is split between the living and dining spaces on one side and one large bedroom on the other.
This 20-foot-wide wood frame townhouse, located at the end of a row along a narrow side yard, had existing front and rear extensions. The building volume was selectively manipulated—in some cases through addition, in others through subtraction—to improve room sizes, sequences and adjacencies.
A 1950s ranch house failed to make the most of its 17-acre site overlooking two converging creeks. The owners wanted to enlarge the house and take advantage of the sweeping vistas and light reflected off the water. The Deep Point Road house was torn down to its foundation, which had to be kept in part due to the building’s proximity to the water.
The layout was configured as an open, airy twenty by fifty foot by ten foot tall primary living space on the parlor floor lined on one side by a full-length bookshelf, art wall, and cat circulation and lounge space. This is a stunning light-filled home renovation project in Brooklyn.
