Sterling Place Brownstone


Brooklyn, New York

This historic façade was in need of restoration, which is why we set about on a mission, in accordance with the NYC Landmark Commission’s strict criteria, to restore what once was for this now impressive brownstone.

Internally, the homeowners wanted to transform their once dark and cramped home into a luxurious space. 

We started with the master bedroom and bath. By opening up an existing blocked-in window in the bathroom and adding a large skylight, this immediately flooded the space with natural light.

After removing the existing bedroom closet, which was built into the bathroom, we created a symmetrical layout for his/her vanities and achieved symmetry in the space with a second centrally located skylight.

New vanities were designed and constructed with dark walnut and white carrera countertops, continuing the aesthetics from some of the other house interiors.

A large mirror, which swings out to reveal hidden shelving, was framed with mouldings salvaged from another location within the house and to complete the finish, we added a bespoke, fitted dresser and armoire, designed to complement the fireplace.
