I recently had the chance to style one of these beautiful homes, a circa 1899 Italianate Brooklyn brownstone for Lang Architecture, who did an overhaul on this home that had been divided into three apartments with wall-to-wall carpet (!!!).
The homeowners wanted to restore the historic elements of the house while also allowing it to feel fresh and modern. They also wanted to bring in light and make the rooms as open and spacious as posible. So Lang cut out giant holes in the masonry back of the house and inserted a two store wall of steel-framed windows.
See below for the final space and HERE to read more about the project on Remodelista.
