Location: Park Slope

An up and coming Real Estate developer chose a quiet tree-lined block in historic Park Slope, Brooklyn, to raise his family.

The design process consisted of creating a technologically modern dwelling in which all building systems were replaced, and most of the interior finishes had to be stripped and redone. With an addition in the rear for a cook's kitchen and the arrangement of rooms to complement the family's lifestyle, this project proved that old and new can coexist and that one can even complement the other, if done right.
