A project Bob Kellner conceived, designed and served as the architect for has made The New York Times. The design was for an Emmy award-winning film editor and his wife, a successful novelist, who wanted to combine their work and life in a five-story building in Brooklyn.
The finished structure houses full-service post-production facilities on the first two floors, with the top three floors reserved for the family’s home. The design excavated a courtyard to bring air and light to the existing lower level and added a new penthouse and rooftop garden.
The result is a vertical urban town home, with the kind of outdoor amenities that are difficult to develop in NYC. The design embraces the past while blending seamlessly with the new Brooklyn community.
