After living in a historic Brooklyn brownstone for years, a couple with a teenage son was ready for a change — and as luck would have it, they found just what they were looking for a few blocks away. The husband and wife, a graphic designer and landscape designer, knew this find had been stripped of its original details and featured an incomplete renovation, but the pair still saw its unfinished state as a chance to mix their midcentury modern and minimalist styles. They called their friend Gitta Robinson of Robinson + Grisaru Architecture for help, and she suggested incorporating raw plywood, patterned ceramic tiles, and unexpected touches of primary colors into the property. The duo agreed, and also decided to keep the brick walls exposed, although, "the debate over whether to paint white or leave natural was lively for a month," Robinson said. As for the other plans, the team connected the kitchen to the garden with a new glass-and-steel wall, and matched the porcelain floor tiles to the terrace's concrete pavers to unite the two spaces. And when it came time to install the finishing touches, Robinson chose light fixtures from the husband's impressive collection of midcentury designs and furnishings and arranged them throughout the house. Now, the couple considers this change in address as an office, a creative laboratory, and most importantly, a home.
