Contemporary Townhouse Renovation-Elizabeth Roberts Design-01-1 Kindesign

This five-story New York City townhouse features a grand appeal thanks to a contemporary renovation led by Elizabeth Roberts Design along with MADE Architecture. The home is located in the heart of Brooklyn’s Park Slope district, overlooking Prospect Park along with other world class cultural amenities right nearby.

Encompassing 5,200 square feet of living space, you will notice that the styling is a mix of old and new. Prior to the renovation, this sandstone townhouse has been kept in the same family for over a century! Notable details: the preservation of the exterior facade, the beautiful woodworking and trim and the exquisite flooring.

Design-build studio MADE Architecture carried out the architectural renovation of the townhouse, while Elizabeth Roberts Design assisted the homeowners with selecting the finishes and furnishings. This included the “furniture, decorative light fixtures, stone and tile floors, countertops, tiles, plumbing fixtures, paint colors, wall paper and other accessories,” states the designers.

The result is an elegant yet eclectically assembled design scheme, full of surprises at every turn. Each space has its own unique personality, full of charm and plenty of history. Furnishings are a mix of eras, creating a visually appealing aesthetic that is both timeless and quaint.
