848 CARROLL STREET, BROOKLYN
Full gut renovation and rear addition to a landmarked townhouse located in Brooklyn’s Park Slope Historic District.
The history and development of the Park Slope Historic District is closely related to that of Prospect Park. The area encompassed by the park and the Historic District was the scene of a major battle in the revolutionary war between the Continental Army under George Washington and the British Army in August of 1776. At that time and until the 1850’s this area remained essentially rural, consisting largely of farmland with rolling hills to the east. In sum, the completion of Prospect Park and construction of the Brooklyn Bridge in 1883 were the two major factors in the development of the area. Carroll Street- named after Charles Carroll, a signer of the Declaration of Independence- is one of the most serene and charming streets in the District. 848 Carroll is a neoclassical four-story red brick with limestone trim, was designed by William B. Greenman and completed in 1905 and described in the AIA Guide to New York City as “a narrow bay-windowed neo-classical exile from the Upper East Side”
Morozov worked closely with the architect and owners to seamlessly integrate all new building infrastructure into the existing shell.
Morozov consulted the owner on high performance building strategies, such as passive heating and cooling, insulation and envelope air-tightness, highly efficient domestic water heating and continuous ventilation with energy recovery. With the exception of domestic water heating, the building does not use natural gas or any other fuel for heating, and is cooled and heated with a variable-refrigerant flow system.
