114 Monroe Street - Bedford - Stuyvesant, New York
House114 brings next level townhouse living to a tranquil tree-lined block on the Clinton Hill/Bed-Stuy border. This two-family home designed by architect Rafi Elbaz has been expanded and completely transformed into a refined sculptural dwelling with a restrained sensibility. Sustainability, reuse and serenity abound throughout House114, weaving together materials old and new. No detail is overlooked regarding functionality and connectivity to indoor and outdoor spaces. The expansive parlor floor celebrates repurposed elements such as an original mantel, now stripped and installed in the company of an impressive kitchen with custom built American vertically grained walnut cabinets, concrete Caesarstone counters and all the requisite high-end appliances and fixtures. This living, kitchen, dining space defines the materiality of House114 with carefully recreated exposed brick, hand applied mineral concrete wall treatments, VOC -free paint, custom black steel entry closet doors and the first flight of a magnificent custom steel staircase with American walnut treads. The complementary exposed steel structure is striking in its presence and essential in its purpose to accentuate the expansiveness of this communal gathering floor.
