Townhouses of Cobble Hill

21,000 square feet
3 stories, 9 units
Brooklyn, New York

This collection of nine brick townhouses includes four refurbished buildings and five new structures designed as contemporary interpretations of the classic Brooklyn row house. Each townhouse offers spacious open floor plans and other modern amenities while preserving the character of Cobble Hill.

This procession of nine brick townhouses comprises a single, refurbished three-story structure and five new buildings that have been seamlessly integrated into the streetscape of Cobble Hill. The existing brick structure was renovated to create four single-family homes resembling traditional townhouses, each with distinct entries, stoops, cornices, and other classic details that are common to the Brooklyn vernacular. The larger new buildings were designed as more contemporary interpretations of the classic typology with garages, oversized casement windows, a simple continuous cornice tying them together, and a projecting two-story bay marking the corner.
