Williamsburg Split Level

In construction: a new, ground-up attached house facing Cooper Park in Williamsburg Brooklyn. The site is part of a row of small 1950s 2-story, split-level townhouses, one of which is to be removed and replaced by this project. In a nod to the existing house, nC2 opted to explore the idea of creating a new, highly-urban version of the split-level home.  The house is organized around a stair oriented laterally at its center, which becomes a focal point for the free-flowing spaces that surround it. All of the main spaces of the house - entry hall, kitchen/dining area, living room, catwalk galleries and a tv room on the top floor - are open to each other and to the main stair. The split-level configuration serves to differentiate these spaces while maintaining the open quality of the house. Construction work is projected to be completed in 2017.
