Pool Of Light
Renovation of a double-duplex brownstone, in Prospect Heights, Brooklyn. A 2-story extension was added to the rear, with an internal, open stair, for the lower duplex, to let as much light in as possible. The rear of the lower duplex, garden level ceiling, was raised to 10 feet, and continues as such through the addition, opening on a 2-level garden.
