This Cobble Hill Townhouse Has a Two-Story Bookshelf, Moon Light, and Climbing Wall

By

With the collaboration of Leroy Street Studio and Brook Landscape, Olivia Song has created an oasis for her husband and two young boys in the renovation of their 1840 townhouse in Cobble Hill, with a climbing wall, moon light fixtures, and a two-story bookshelf.

Her objectives were simple: save the giant London Plane trees in the garden and create a loft-like feeling while preserving the integrity of historic details that juxtaposed the architectural interventions.

In this episode of Interior Lives with our design editor, Wendy Goodman, see how Olivia’s work and design eye has yielded a dramatic house that is family friendly through and through.
