This 750 sf post-war apartment, renovated by SKOLNICK, is located in the charming, historic neighborhood of Brooklyn Heights, NY. The owner was seeking an “industrial, Brooklyn-style” aesthetic which was accomplished through the use of unique materials and design elements such as reclaimed teak for the cabinets, acid-treated zinc panel walls, a sliding barn door, cast concrete countertops, vintage pendant lighting, and bamboo flooring that connects all of the rooms.
The expanse of the apartment is punctuated by the central elements of the kitchen volume and sliding door. A small-scale office was also added adjacent to the living room and is divided by a half-wall partition, which still allows the area to feel open. A wall of large windows affords a panoramic city view and recessed bookshelves underneath the window ledges add additional storage space. Other enhancements include a complete bathroom upgrade, the creation of hallway closet space, and new lighting systems.
