Carroll Gardens Townhouse, Brooklyn

This three story townhouse in Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn, was in a state of disrepair when it was purchased in 2007, with a severely deteriorated front and rear masonry facade, sagging floor joists, and unsalvageable interior finishes. The gut renovation included rebuilding the front and rear facade, replacing most of the floor joists for the 1st and 2nd floors, and a complete reconfiguration of the interior on the 1st and 2nd floors. The ground floor was reconfigured as a single open space, with visual focus on the opening to the rear garden. The rear facade was rebuilt with a steel transfer beam at the ground floor level, allowing for the entire 1st floor space to be opened up with a bi-parting Nanawall system that incorporates an extension of the kitchen counter. A set of french doors at the 2nd floor open up to a Juliet balcony, visually connecting the 2nd floor back to the garden at the rear. Download PDF
