Rooftop Addition to Carriage HouseCarroll Gardens, Brooklyn

An angular, minimal new volume sits perched above this existing brick carriage house, forming a dramatic contemporary counterpoint to the nineteenth-century building below. Inside, a new open-riser stair of solid white oak travels past a wall of rhythmic, bright, graphic wallpaper, leading to the new master bedroom, walk-in closet, and en suite bathroom above. Huge glass bedroom windows create a bedroom in the sky. Glass doors lead out on a partially Ipe covered roof deck, affording a quiet sanctuary from the city below.
