A Brooklyn Heights duplex apartment
was updated to feel warmer and bring it
into the 21st century. Light maple
cabinetry and striking Italian stone
countertops replace the dated industrial
style of the kitchen. In the living and
dining rooms, frameless glass, wood
cabinets and limestone countertops
integrate the adjacent kitchen. The
master bedroom, reoriented to maximize
the view, includes a custom designed
fireplace and vanity. Other customized
features include a slate desk in the new
office, headboard and night tables,
and bathroom vanities. Ambiance and
elegance is achieved by softer lighting
and less visible fixtures throughout.
