Here's a photo or two of our favorite 2 flat gut rehab. The interior walls were removed and the focus has been turned towards a garden to the west. The 2nd floor floats on the west and north (street elevation) side. There's a feeling of openness on the first floor and, interestingly a real sense of mystery leading to the second floor private spaces. 2 flats are generally very ho-hum experiences. This one is not!
Check out the second floor hallway floor detail. It allows light and air to pass through further emphasizing the connected nature of the building. Yes, it is connected but it also acts like a screen and makes the trip upstairs special. What do you think?
