A Modern Home In A Brooklyn Brownstone

Historic architecture combined with modern design can be absolutely beautiful if it’s done right. In this Brooklyn brownstone – built in 1910 – the owners did a beautiful job in creating a modern home in an old building. The home belongs to Jeff Madalena (co-founder of clothing brand Oak) and Jason Gnewikow. The goal was to create a space where they can clear their heads and to achieve that they chose a minimal black and white palette. The minimalistic interior make the historic features really stand out so it’s lovely to see how these two styles compliment each other. It’s such a beautiful and relaxing home and I’m happy so see a historic renovation done well.

  1. At the souce it says: ‘The kitchen was gutted for a modern wall of Dunsmuir Cabinet fronts and Carrara marble backsplash. It includes a Bertazzoni range, fully integrated Liebherr fridge, and dishwasher behind a custom panel in the kitchen island. Jeff and Jason first priced out a piece of black marble for the waterfall kitchen island but decided to avoid black marble due to acid staining. After looking around, they discovered the matte black quartzite from ABC Worldwide Stone: “super-low maintenance, super-high drama—in all the best ways!”, they say. The faucet is the Blanco Linus Pullout Kitchen Faucet’

    I hope this helps!
