Translating a couple’s love for books and music into a stylish innovative and light-filled home in Brooklyn BFDO Architects completely revamped the interior of this gorgeous rowhouse.
One of the two rear structures hosts the master bedroom suite with the other containing the kids’ bedroom. An undulating roofscape puts the final touches on a truly mesmerizing lakeside home.
It is the use of concrete and metal that significantly reduce construction costs along with innovative building techniques and a predisposition towards minimalism.
Existing building constraints meant that the street façade of the house was left completely untouched while a modern living area kitchen and dining were added to the rear. Connecting the rear garden smaller inner courtyard and barbecue zone with the living space the revitalized interior is filled with a flood of natural light.
Connectivity with nature was the driving force behind the form of this Japanese residence and the unique L-shaped cutout in its living space that leads one on to the wooden deck outside. Large glass doors and cleverly placed corner windows bring the distant mountains indoors even as the many sights and sounds outside leave you spellbound.
