BAY RIDGE EXTENSION

Situated in a remarkably intact string of twenty four bow fronted rowhouses, this particular townhouse features a haphazard and unlawful rear extension. The property’s twenty foot width makes for tight quarters during construction:

  • how to extend house + preserve daylight to existing spaces?
  • how to use materials to connect indoors + outdoors?
  • how to blend historic + contemporary details ?
