Elizabeth Roberts is a New York-based architect with a ton of experience in some pretty prestigious firms on both coasts and a killer background in historic preservation. She has a great artistic eye and a solid understanding of the craft of building. This is a brownstone in Brooklyn they basically deconstructed. They busted the drywall and plaster off the ceiling and along the party wall exposing the rafters and brick. It's pretty typical in a building dating back to the late 1800's/early 1900's but it's just timeless. The kitchen is all new and all custom, crafted in solid teak. And, why stop there? The tops are teak butcher block. So good.
