Passive Townhouse Gut Renovation

Park Slope, Brooklyn

This project involved the complete gut renovation of an existing 3000 square foot narrow townhouse in Park Slope, Brooklyn, including a new contemporary rear facade. A cedar screen extending over the rear glass fa├žade provides privacy and modulates light and views of the neighborhood. Oiled wide plank floors, hand-crafted slatted cabinetry, frosted glass walls, playful tile work, bright yellow back painted glass panels and custom stone sink complete the unique, custom, contemporary interiors. We created an energy efficient, insulated, Passive house to create a quiet, comfortable interior environment which requires a minimum of heating and cooling.
