The owners of this 11-foot-wide row house in Brooklyn were faced with a conundrum that many young families in New York eventually confront: the possibility of sacrificing location for space. After living in the house for eight years, the pair – an architect and jewelry designer – chose to expand in order to make room for their two growing children and remain in the Brooklyn neighborhood they had come to admire. The original 2-story, 1000SF home was completely gutted and extended to 4 levels by adding a bedroom suite above and digging a new urban mudroom below.Save this picture!Section PerspectiveThe narrowness of the house required the design to make effective yet frugal use of space; every inch was important. Precise positioning of walls, doors, and windows was crucial as each floor was planned to serve a purpose. The lowest level serves as a new entry, storage, laundry, and mechanical area; the first floor is a continuous public space with living, dining, kitchen, and library opening to gardens in the front and back; the second contains two kids’ bedrooms along with a 2-sink bathroom; while the topmost level holds the master suite with a sleeping area, bathroom, balcony, and terrace.Save this picture!© Matthew WilliamsSave this picture!Proposed PlansSave this picture!© Matthew WilliamsA slender steel stair repositioned on the south side party wall connects the house vertically and draws more light, air, and views into the building. Materials throughout the home are modest, natural, and unassuming: the rawness of unfinished steel and character-grade walnut is juxtaposed with the simple refinement of honed Carrara marble and matte ceramic hex tiles. The result is a home that is not just larger, but livelier – filled with the possibility to do more and stay longer in a city that requires its residents to be resourceful.Save this picture!© Rafael GamoProject gallerySee allShow lessRunner-Up Proposals Revealed in Tour Montparnasse CompetitionArchitecture NewsMetro Stations Line 2 – CCR Metrô Bahia / JBMC Arquitetura e UrbanismoSelected Projects Share Save this picture!© Rafael Gamo+ 34 Share “COPY” General Contractor: Houses Photographs Products translation missing: Little House.

Supermac’s plans in doubt as Letterkenny Shopping Centre objects

first_img By admin – January 24, 2019 Plans for a Supermac’s outlet in Letterkenny are in jeopardy following an objection being lodged by the owners of Letterkenny Shopping Centre.The council had approved the development on the Port Road but that is now being appealed to An Bord Pleanala.The Council granted permission to Atlantic Enterprises Limited for the demolition of an existing vacant shed on the Port Road site for the provision of a two story restaurant with drive through facilities and 25 car parking spaces.Lindat Limited is appealing that decision saying that as the freehold owners of the land, their consent was not sought, though required, for the development.They say the proposed development does not comply in any way with the lease agreement between the two parties.Lindat, the owners of the shopping centre, says the addition of a fast food takeaway would lead to further traffic delays in the area.They add that Letterkenny Shopping Centre prides itself on keeping the local area clean and tidy and that a takeaway will open up to both anti social behavior and waste management issues in the area.
