Cobble Hill Townhouse 2
This Cobble Hill house was already a single-family house but needed refinement to meet our clients' needs. Platt Dana Architects removed both the garden and parlor floor rear facade windows and enlarged the existing openings to create a light filled back of the house. The existing garden, a mosquito-filled jungle, was transformed back to its original layout utilizing many existing materials. There is a large eat-in kitchen facing the garden with an adjacent cozy family room on the streetside. The parlor floor retained the formal entrance, living room and dining room (which doubles as a library). There is a small sitting room overlooking the garden which is linked to the kitchen below by an interior stair. The 3rd floor is set up for our clients, two busy professionals, and contains their bedroom and primary bathroom, a sitting room, and a private office for each. PDA solved the puzzle on the 4th floor by incorporating four bedrooms and three bathrooms comfortably. There’s even room for the peloton bike under a newly expanded rooftop skylight on the 4th floor. The existing distressed wide plank pine parlor floor was a main reason our clients purchased the house. PDA utilized Hudson Flooring for reclaimed flooring that matched where new floor was needed.
