The Clinton Hill brownstone had been rental units for many decades and suffered much neglect on top of some original inferior engineering. This house was largely stripped back to its bones before it could go forward.
This townhouse in the Fort Greene section of Brooklyn was on the verge of collapse when the owners purchased it. We were called in to reinforce the structure with steel and rebuild the rear brick wall, in addition to restoring all of the beautiful molding and plasterwork throughout the building.
This tall and narrow house was built between two houses on what had been an alley between them. In the process, the builders failed to build walls that were structural on the sides. When we began working, the structure was condemned, the roof was collapsing, and the front foundation was failing.
Originally designed by the Los Angeles based firm SPI, this loft was very outdated and sad before the renovation. The total gutting of the bathrooms paired with the economic reworking of the kitchen gave this 5th avenue loft a new and refreshed feeling on a budget.
