Fitzhugh Karol and Lyndsay Caleo, partners in the Brooklyn Home Company (a design/build outfit with workshops in Brooklyn), added a clever kitchen addtion to their own brownstone in Brooklyn. The couple used reclaimed wood for shelving and created a custom island from sapele wood (similar to mahogany) with a built-in knifeblock at one end. Extra-large double-hung windows, sourced from a storefront window manufacturer, flood the space with light. Photos by Emily Gilbert (see more images at Design Sponge).
