A recently completed (January 2017) renovation of a townhouse duplex apartment in the Historic Cobble Hill District of Brooklyn for a lovely couple with an excellent taste in art and furnishings.
The project started as a kitchen and bathroom remodel, but the extremely poor "before" condition of the duplex and extensive demolition and necessary repairs created an opportunity to re-envision the space and change the direction of the remodel. We re-designed the layout of both floors, and improved the flow and purpose of all the rooms, maximized every inch to create storage and functionality, while keeping an open and uncluttered appearance.
The client's affinity for excellent design, knowledge of materials and color (the client is an exceptional ceramicist and made the tile for the fireplace surround as well as the kitchen backsplash) was especially fun to work with; and while we vetted every detail for functionality, we also focused intently on the enjoyment these details will bring visually.
The contractor on the project was Maslow Interiors,LLC, known for their meticulous attention to detail, creativity and exceptional craftsmanship.
The Dean Street Project was a complete renovation of the main floor of a duplex apartment near Barclay's Center in Brooklyn. The client had original ideas and a strong vision for palette, detail and materials and we collaborated closely in bringing these ideas to realistic fruition.
We designed all millwork, trim, doors, electrical, lighting plan, flooring, hardware, tile, stone and plumbing for this apartment. Client was hands on and together we accomplished many finishing touches, including mixing a custom grout color for the bathroom to a perfect shade of teal.
Kitchen cabinetry was custom designed and supplied by us. The "before" kitchen was a 2005 builder's special with wasted storage opportunities. We took special care in utilizing all the nooks and crannies of this kitchen and creating a perfect environment for cooking and entertaining.
The Contractor on this Project (as on the Cobble Hill Project) was Maslow Interiors, LLC.
