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.
“The idea of having a very modern space in an old building spoke to us.”
“We wanted something uncluttered and clean to unwind in.”
