FORBES TOWNHOUSE Park Slope, Brooklyn Abelow Sherman Architects Partner-in-Charge: David Sherman Contractor: Top Drawer Construction Photographer: Mikiko Kikuyama Completed: 2007 Project Team: Rosie Donovan, Mara Ayuso This project upgrades a brownstone in the Park Slope Historic District in a distinctive manner. The clients are both trained in the visual arts, and have well-developed sensibilities about how a house is used as well as how elements from certain eras can interact visually. A lively dialogue has resulted in a design in which the architectural and construction interventions appear as a subtle background to the decorating. The intended effect is that the structure of each room appears to have a “timeless” quality, while the fit-ups, loose furniture, and lighting appear more contemporary. Thus the bathrooms are sheathed in mosaic tile, with a rough texture, and of indeterminate origin. The color palette is generally muted. The fixtures however are modern Italian. A kitchen features rough brick walls and exposed wood beams, as crooked as can be, while the cabinets within are modernist overlay slabs of walnut veneer. Throughout the house, the visible components include thick Cararra marble, new mahogany windows with weights-and-pulleys, new steel sash windows and doors, and period light fixtures. What is not seen is a state-of-the-art infrastructure consisting of a new hot water plant, structured cabling, new electrical service and plumbing piping. Because of an unusual relationship with its site, there is no backyard to speak of, only an eight foot deep space between the building’s first floor extension and the property line. In order to offset this problem, a series of Ipe wood decks were designed, and very precisely built to less than 1/8 inch tolerance. There is a deck of some kind on each floor from the basement to the third floor. On the exterior, the brownstone facade was completely restored. All of this was achieve

Archadeck of Akron OH
In addition to designing these lovely hardscapes, we also brought our talents as Akron’s premier porch builder to this project. The gable roof features a decorative end detail while its opening increases air circulation in the space. The interior features a beautiful knotty pine ceiling. And what would a covered porch or patio be without a ceiling fan? We also installed recessed can lights in the ceiling so the homeowners can enjoy the space after dark. For additional convenience, we integrated electrical wiring into one of the stone (paver) columns and added an electrical outlet.
Archadeck - Columbus
The patio was built using Unilock’s Beacon Hill Flagstone pavers in the color Granite Fusion. A double border using a sailor and soldier course outlines the entire patio, adding depth and interest. The sailor course uses Unilock’s Holland Stone in Charcoal and the soldier course in Brussels Block XL. We also used that same stunning hardscape border to accentuate and delineate the dining and seating areas.
