St Mark's Residence #2
Brownstone Renovation with One-Story Addition
Architecture Services, Construction Management
Prospect Architecture designed and managed the construction of a full renovation for this 3-story, single-family, Brooklyn brownstone. The renovation included a new kitchen, reconfiguring the parlor floor layout to be as open as possible, two and a half new bathrooms, new oak staircases and oak railings, and new mahogany entrance doors which all added to the beauty of the house while introducing a modern day functionality. Sustainable and environmentally friendly practices were a focus of the design-build approach in this project. This included the use of recycled blue jean insulation, no/low-VOC paints and adhesives, air sealing, FSC-certified wood floors, natural oil and oil wax finishes on the floors and recycled/reclaimed/ renewable products where possible.
