Cobble Hill Carriage House
In dire need of renovation, the refurbishment for this rare two-story 1900 converted carriage house was commissioned by a couture fashion designer and equestrian. Our client requested a monochrome palette and for the design to honor the heritage of the building. After rotting carpets and redundant plumbing systems were stripped away, the bare bones of this historic Brooklyn find were revealed.
We thoughtfully restructured the floorplan to feature one spacious bedroom in place of two, complete with a palatial walk-in closet and en-suite bathroom. A derelict spiral staircase was replaced with beautiful built-in treads, concealing custom storage solutions and a feline hideaway. Downstairs, wood ceilings and brick walls were exposed, the kitchen and powder room were reimagined, and a laundry room and walk-in pantry were added. To brighten and complement the classic black-and-white palette, we installed skylights and injected personality with niche equestrian-themed elements.
