Hoyt Street house, Brooklyn, USA 2014-15

Designed for a couple with a young child, this townhouse renovation focuses on creating a strong design narrative in a tight urban site.  Externally, planting is introduced to enliven the southern façade with what is effectively a vertical garden.  A series of stepping platforms created on the rooftop form a change in level that makes the limited space feel more valued. Internally, a ‘ribbon’ of timber lines the staircase leading the eye through the house in a way that lends it a distinct sense of tactility and identity.
