More daylight and higher temperatures mean more evenings spent people-watching on the front stoop. The tight parameters of this Brooklyn Heights front yard required precision when redesigning the stoop. Separating the staircase and the stoop landing makes the structure feel less monolithic and bringing light into a new understoop areaway.
The new stoop was designed in a lighter scale, where the stair is separated from the stoop. Continuous replicated ironwork has historic qualities that reflect the original character of the front façade.
