Carroll Gardens Rowhouse

(2005)

The 16’ wide, 140 year-old row house is transformed by selectively stripping away historic layers and adding back new details in contrast to the old. Each detail results from a single idea acting on one material: folding aluminum discs into spherical light fixtures; water-jet cutting weathering steel panels with shifting foliage-shadow patterns to make a fence; perforating a tapered plywood box with the same pattern; punching and bending raw steel sheet for cabinetry.
