BROWNSTONER’S REVIEW OF STEEL WINDOWS

BROWNSTONER’S REVIEW OF STEEL WINDOWS

03/07/2018

Brownstoner recently featured several CWB row house projects that use new, thermally broken, steel window and door systems as a key feature of their design. Principal and row house expert, Brendan Coburn, was interviewed to get his take: “[The slender steel profile] matches handsomely with the weight and mass of brick...To have this light, delicate steel structure — the juxtaposition is very satisfying.” To read more about what Brendan and other local architects have to say about the durability and visual appeal of steel for their projects, click here. Contact us at design@cwbarchitects.com to discuss your renovation project.

BOERUM HILL PROJECT FEATURED IN THE NEW YORK TIMES

BOERUM HILL PROJECT FEATURED IN THE NEW YORK TIMES

02/19/2018

Our recently completed Boerum Hill townhouse was featured in the New York Times last week. Originally built in the 1890s, the structure was crumbling and in need of a complete overhaul. What ensued was a full gut renovation of the three-story structure and the addition of a top floor master suite for the clients and their two children. Principal Brendan Coburn worked with the clients to make sure the final design was their dream home, a collaborative effort that involved the contractor recreating some of the home’s original details as well as the incorporation of details from the client’s previous home. The client also joined forces with interior decorator Katherine Hammond for the interiors. To read the full article, click here.

WALL STREET JOURNAL ON THE MODERN REC ROOM

WALL STREET JOURNAL ON THE MODERN REC ROOM

08/18/2017

In the Wall Street Journal’s recent design article writer Elizabeth Anne Hartman explores the evolution of the recreation room. From basements to attics, spare and otherwise under-used nooks of residences have been co-opted as “getaway bonus spaces.” Hartman points to one of our Boerum Hill brownstones as a prime example of how bringing visual order to the out-of-the-way space can transform it into an oasis. We transitioned this brownstone's basement into a comfortable, contemporary hang-out space for the family's teenagers and their friends. By utilizing simple design solutions and selecting kid and pet-friendly flooring and furniture, the space became a true retreat. Read the full article here. The first photo is from the project featured in the Wall Street Journal, the second is of another transformed getaway space: the cellar of our Boerum Hill Greek Revival project.
