LHSA+DP was commissioned to renovate this 750-sf post-war apartment located in the charming, historic neighborhood of Brooklyn Heights. The main goal of the project was to create a sleek, modern apartment by inserting a more architectonic, textural living experience into the existing space. This was accomplished through the use of unique materials such as reclaimed teak for the cabinets, acid-treated zinc panel walls, and cast concrete countertops. Vintage pendant lighting and a sliding barn-style door between the bedroom and dining area complement this distinctively
A wall of large windows, affording a panoramic Manhattan view, brings abundant natural light into the main living area, and recessed bookshelves fit neatly underneath the window ledges, creating an intimate, yet open, atmosphere while simultaneously solving the problem of limited storage space. Other enhancements in this modern apartment include a complete bathroom upgrade, the creation of hallway closet space behind translucent sliding doors, and new entry and living room lighting systems.
