An 1845 Brooklyn Heights townhouse is restored and revived. The Brooklyn Home Company breathes new life into a pre-war home by opening up the floor plan and adding a set of oversized windows in the back of the home. The resulting light allows the sprawling space to shine, drawing attention to historic details such as crown moldings and arched doorways. The modernized space acts as a perfect showcase to sculptural elements, such as custom banisters, mirrors, and furniture pieces by sculptor Fitzhugh Karol and Philadelphia studio BDDW, and one-of-a-kind artworks by Chad Kouri, Lindsey Cuenca Walker, and Erik Barthels. Tour the 8000 square foot home below.

“We wanted to honor the historic bones of this 1845 Greek Revival townhouse while bringing in the liveliness and color of the Brooklyn art scene happening outside of its doors now.”
“We lovingly restored original details like the crown molding and arched doorways, but one main focus was to modernize.”
“We opened up the first floor to its full 25-foot-width, and added intrigue via a sculptural banister, mirrors, and custom furniture pieces created by sculptor Fitzhugh Karol and Philadelphia studio BDDW.”
