Casa Karp is a Brooklyn Heights brownstone and was a 2 phase house transformation project.  The initial phase (in 2008-2009) required taking an estate condition brownstone and putting an extension on the back of the house. The resulting house is roughly 5,000 square feet. The project entailed new structural, mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems in addition to restoration of finishes and features as well as new finishes and fixtures. In 2015 Rodriguez Studio was commissioned to refurbish the stoop and lower level at the front of the house, as well as create a new rear yard configuration which is inviting and better suited for entertaining.  The owners kept a very deatiled blog of the entire process- it's a great read and a great overview of the renovation!  http://karpmahal.blogspot.com/
  Loft-82  is an interior renovation of a duplex apartment in New York City. The design adds 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms to the 2nd level, a home office, and storage space above the kitchen. It also uses reclaimed snow fence as wall cladding around the stairs to visually connect the main floor with the upper level.  The name comes from the cost of the renovation, which was $82 per square foot.
