The Insider: Total Gut Reno in Brooklyn Heights

TODAY’S INSIDER is a brick row house on State Street had been the victim of the same ignominious treatment that befell so many stately 19th century row houses in the 20th. It had been transformed from a luxurious single-family residence into four floor-through apartments, and in the process, became little more than a tenement.

Go here to read all about how Manhattan-based Platt Dana Architects performed restoration magic on the outside, replacing the original stoop and long parlor windows, and created an ‘updated traditional’ interior with all-new everything, from floor joists to moldings.

    I just want to say how much I enjoy your Insider posts (I tend to read them on Brownstoner). The fact that you include floorplans where possible adds a whole new level of information. I’m beginning a gut reno of a small (sadly, detail free) rowhouse in Brooklyn and the Insider has been a touchstone for inspiration. This home is absolutely gorgeous and the renovation is impeccable. I love the incredible light fixtures, panelling and paint color in the dining room!

    I love the 4 inch carrera marble hex tiles in the master bathroom. Could you please tell me the source? I’ve seen hex tiles in 1 and 2 inch sizes but haven’t come across the 4 inch size and would love to use it for my own master bathroom remodel. Thank you!

Got something to say? Please say it!
