Located in the Carroll Gardens neighborhood of Brooklyn, this single family, 5,600 square foot townhouse is compromised of a 17’ wide existing townhouse and an adjacent vacant lot formerly used for parking. The rare lot width afforded DXA an opportunity to arrange the entirety of the program around a central courtyard, providing a continuous visual connection to the outdoors and throughout the home’s three levels.
The simple, contemporary masonry and punched opening façade blends seamlessly with its turn of the century, Italianate neighbors. A garage and entry parlor facing street level serve as a welcome area for guests. Once invited beyond the parlor the centralized court organization of the house is revealed, providing views up to the children’s playroom & bedrooms, and to the office and guest suites above.
