Hicks Street Residence

brooklyn heights; brooklyn, ny

This one-bed, one-bath apartment is located in a historic 1935 co-op on one of Brooklyn Heights’ many beautiful tree-lined streets. The renovation required a complete re-imagining of its former pre-war glory, while maintaining and enhancing its unique raised kitchen from which the future owner could more easily cook and entertain. Dated curved arches, scalloped plaster moldings and an awkward 1980’s millwork divider were removed to bring a new visual connection to the adjacent living room and encourage every bit of the limited available natural light to come through. In place of the former divider, we integrated a large dining table for six that both spans the height difference and added sorely needed additional work surface for food preparation. The bathroom and bedroom were updated with a soft palette of various off-whites and matte greys to reflect additional light and accented with dark grey and black finishes, such as the bath hexagon tile floor and kitchen pendants.
