Brooklyn Home Tour 2015: Carved Duplex
Featured In The Brooklyn Home Tour 2015 By Dwell Magazine: Carved Duplex
An excerpt from a post that originally appeared on dwellondesign.com
A look at a beautiful renovation project and part of Dwell’s Brooklyn Home Tour 2015. Carved Duplex is a rooftop addition to a brick townhouse in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The apartment takes over the 3rd floor and expands upward via a COR-TEN box. The project explores the phenomenological qualities of living in close proximity to large monoliths in various material forms. The home slowly unfolds layers of lightness, from a black bedroom on the lower level to the all-white living room on the upper level. The townhouse includes twin-cut fireplaces, large wedge core, stainless steel kitchen, long stainless steel tub, roof deck and grey wooden floors throughout. The COR-TEN steel prints were created by fashion designer Jonathan Cohen for the spring/summer 2012 collection.
