Elizabeth Roberts Architecture & Design helped the owners of a Carroll Gardens home bring in more light and regain the feel of a classic Brooklyn townhouse.
A dilapidated Fort Greene row house was gutted and its original interior details re-created in a sweeping overhaul by Gowanus-based Elizabeth Roberts Architecture & Design.
Elizabeth Roberts Architecture gut renovated and upgraded a narrow Park Slope townhouse with an open kitchen, new wall of windows and high-style baths.
It takes a certain level of commitment to transform a wall with a bold pattern or color.
New woodwork, clean lines and rich materials enhance a condo in a recently converted bank building in Brooklyn Heights.
Ensemble Architecture gutted and rebuilt this late-19th-century wood-frame townhouse to create a loft-like duplex home, with a rental unit below.
This may be the only townhouse in Brooklyn with a room dedicated to a urinal, entered via swinging saloon-style doors. “It’s the kind of thing you can do when you have 6,000 square feet,” said Elizabeth Roberts of Ensemble Architecture.
The busy Gowanus-based firm masterminded the transformation of this five-story, 25-foot-wide corner building, taking it from a three-family plus doctor’s office to a four-story home for a single family, with a rental apartment and a professional office on the garden level.
Owned by a single family for a century, this Gilded Age townhouse near Prospect Park came into modern times with nearly all its original detail preserved.
That’s not to say the new homeowners didn’t have work to do. First they hired Red Hook-based MADE Architecture to, among other things, design new bathroom layouts as well as a new layout and cabinetry for the garden-level kitchen, and to bring the intact but timeworn woodwork to a high level of polish.
Then in came Ensemble Architecture to choose furnishings and finishes, including floor and wall tiles, light fixtures, countertops, plumbing fixtures, wallpaper and paint colors. The Gowanus-based studio, which was founded in 1998 by Elizabeth Roberts and now comprises 13 architects and designers, recently expanded its interiors department.
Along with the Nets, fixies, Patrick Stewart, and hydroponic kale, Brooklyn has fireplaces. Amazing fireplaces. The kind of mantels that could inspire a move — if you don’t live here already. Here are 15 we can’t stop dreaming about.
This recently gut-renovated 1860s townhouse in the lower Slope has some trademark signifiers — besides the generally thoughtful and sensitive design — that Elizabeth Roberts and her team at Gowanus-based Ensemble Architecture were here.
