“Clinton Hill Townhouse”

Housing; Brooklyn, NY, USA; 2017.

In the renovation of a landmarked townhouse in the Clinton Hill area of Brooklyn, the house’s extensive historic detail is offset with modern insertions, some which take the house’s deep, curvilinear forms as the basis for the new elements. With minimal, crisp geometries denoting areas of change, the house retains a record of its historic condition.
