From The Archives: A Handcrafted Home In The Heart of Brooklyn


“Moving to New York was a big jump for both of us, having grown up in the country. The main goal for our living space in NY was to create a departure from the city. We looked at many brownstones but there were very few buildings on the market that fit our model…We approached the project like a puzzle and it was just a matter of figuring out how it would all fit together.”
