Lea Architecture

Leonard Street Townhouse is a multi-family, multi-generational house in Brooklyn. The owners, the third generation currently occupying the building, needed a little breathing room. This project will add significant square footage to the lower unit of a three family home. The unit is currently occupied by a family of five and will more than double in size after the renovation. The expansion will enlarge and reorganize their living spaces, locating the communal spaces adjacent to the rear yard and providing an alternative entrance and exit, which will remove the circulation of the unit from the rest of the house.
