Carroll Gardens Brownstone

Given a house filled with asbestos, we were glad to have a client with green ambitions. Among the sustainable strategies used were radiant heat flooring, solar water heating, a whole house fan, spray foam insulation, and maximizing daylight by cutting big skylights into the playroom and kids’ bathroom and opening a third of the rear wall. Even the little balconies are the repurposed fire escape with ladders removed. The etched-glass front door has a peephole of clear glass.
