Brilliant renovation of a multi-level Landmarked townhouse in Brooklyn

Murdock Solon Architects completely transformed this Landmarked townhouse located in the Clinton Hill neighborhood of Brooklyn, New York. This project entailed a gut renovation of a 3,000 square foot, multi-unit structure, converting it into a single-family dwelling, all while maintaining an array of original elements through creative interventions. This includes the addition of four bedrooms, two full bathrooms, two half bathrooms, a home office, and a second garden apartment, along with a spacious 1,500 square foot backyard.

The homeowner’s vision for their townhouse was to create a bright and airy aesthetic with an open layout on the main level. The primary feature of this dwelling became the parlor floor, which encompasses an open kitchen and living/dining area. The ceiling heights in this space range from 11 to 22.5 feet, which are emphasized by double volume steel-framed windows in the kitchen. A loft-style home office was constructed above the kitchen, enabling the homeowner to work while still feeling part of the family activities below.

The interiors of this townhome maintain an undeniable industrial vibe, yet offers the feeling of a family home with the use of natural materials. The design also reflects the vernacular details of the original neighborhood. Plumbing pipes and floor joists were deliberately left exposed. The original wood used in this townhouse was reclaimed and refinished. Luxuriously appointed finishes include Italian Effeti kitchen cabinets, and Waterworks fixtures throughout, along with a Tensui water filtration system.

What We Love: This Landmarked townhouse offers a beautifully refreshed interior layout for family living. We are loving all of the industrial elements and preserved details throughout this home. The kitchen is incredible with its steel-framed windows, soaring ceilings, and exposed structural beams and ductwork… and the whitewashed brick wall, fabulous!
