This row house, developed by Lang Architecture in Brooklyn, N.Y., is the result of an architectural makeover. Originally a three-family residence, the home in the Carroll Gardens neighborhood now accommodates the contemporary living needs of a single family.

The elegant Italianate-style home has four levels and showcases original details throughout, carefully restored by the developing team. Large steel windows can be found on every floor, and the ceiling boasts a skylight.

According to the architects, the parlor floor is the social area of the house; it accommodates a living room in the front and a kitchen with a steel balcony in the rear. This floor features a custom window seat next to a tall bookcase creatively integrated into the wall.

“The fine wood period stair has been restored and leads to the bedroom floors,” the architects said. “A master bedroom overlooks the street, with a generous dressing room and bathroom suite in the back. The top floor features two children’s bedrooms flanking the stair hall.” [Photos by Ty Cole Photography]
