When Josh Lapidus and Tara Consi had outgrown their narrow Brooklyn home they started looking for a bigger property, which they found right around the corner. Initially they thought they had hit the jackpot with this three-story brick townhouse built in 1890. But quickly they realised that a small renovation would turn into a major one as the structural problems were vast.
About 50% of the structure had to be replaced but together with Brooklyn Studio & interior designer Katherine Hammond did they create their dream home. Many of the original details were recreated and woodwork from their former home was copied into the new townhouse.
A new top floor was added for the master suite, giving the family even more space. The interior is classic with colorful design pieces and beautiful built-in furniture and even though most of the interior is new it certainly has that classic original touch.
