Chilly mountain air descends down to the valley from the lofty peaks each afternoon turning the prospect of an open outdoor garden into an impossibility. To get around this problem Aarón Carrillo Díaz decided to bring the greenery indoors along with the sight of the open sky and plenty of natural light and sweeping terraces.
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.
Keeping the backdrop neutral and elegant the revitalized home features elegant bookshelves on the first floor that cleverly incorporate existing support columns. But the chic transformation goes much beyond these striking bookshelves!
At the far end lies the third volume of the house that contains the patio along with a double height glass dome that aids in air circulation. Large indoor plants a pebble garden and spacious gathering zones complete the lower level with the second floor containing the bedrooms and other private spaces. A perfect interaction of indoor and outdoor design elements draped in a glassy sheen!
It is the parlor level of the townhouse with the kitchen dining and living area that has undergone the most transformation with a stylish staircase in wood and steel at its heart. White is the color of choice for the backdrop with a reclaimed wood floor a tiled kitchen backdrop and exposed ceiling beams ushering in plenty of textural contrast.
A large pantry that is carefully concealed using a sliding door a colorful music room and a vivacious home office with candy-striped accent wall are a few of the many delightful spaces inside this reinvigorated Brooklyn home that charm you with their curated colorful zest.
Each volume of the house slowly and effortlessly flows into the covered terrace next to it as the green spaces bridge the kitchen and dining with the living area. Large glass domes cover each of the terraces and keep out the cold wind even as one enjoys warmth and sunshine without having to venture outdoors.
