228 Washington…garage to townhouse

April 26, 2012

these are the first sketches of how we’d like to convert the ugly 60′s garage into a modern passive house townhouse in a landmarked┬ádistrict… hopefully we’ll be lucky with the LPC… before you tell us that we are crazy to propose something like this in a landmarked area, please look at this nice image of a traditional shutter which can be found in typical Brooklyn brownstones… we are just mounting the shutters on the outside of the building, for 2 reasons: to give the interior some privacy, and with careful design of the louvres we can cut down on the scorching nyc summer sun…
