The garden walkway leads to a double-height entry hall with a contemporary chandelier composed of pendant lights of varying shapes.
“We put a big skylight over the stairwell in order to bring light into the center of the house, and we opened up the stairwell to maximize how much light reached the first floor,” Barker says.
Breuer’s signature floating staircase features abstract geometric cut­outs.
One of the greatest design challenges, according to Franz and Paré-Mayer, was reimagining the dark, unfinished garage space in a way that would “establish [it] as primary, instead of an afterthought to the original floor above.” This was achieved by layering open, linked spaces on the ground floor and sticking to a few carefully selected materials for cohesion and fluidity. There are hardly any hallways in the home; every space serves a function. Polished concrete floors continue throughout the new living level, and a bent metal dining chair with a reclaimed Douglas fir backrest made by Scholz sits in front of an open white oak staircase.
Thick slabs of walnut serve as treading on the staircase.
A stairwell leads up to the reconfigured living spaces and principal bedroom on the upper floor.
Another variation on the pattern, designed by architect Tim Bade, appears on the brushed-aluminum guardrail.

Carefully placed modern touches illuminate restored details in the home. An industrial-style pendant, which Jeff and Jason created themselves using a DIY instructional kit by lighting designer Lindsey Adelman, hangs from the intricate millwork in the entryway. The print is by photographer Anna Wolf.
After restoring and renovating the interior of their four-story brownstone in Brooklyn’s Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood, Jeff Madalena and Jason Gnewikow—creative entrepreneurs and self-described interiors obsessives—outfitted the historic 1910 space with a minimal black-and-white palette, down to the stair railing and original moulding and wainscoting. Sparse, modern pieces—like a two-pronged sconce they designed for the parlor-floor landing and a Cy Twombly print in the adjacent family room—provide elegant counterpoints to the architecture.
The stair features custom installations by lighting designer Johanna Grawunder. When turned off, the panels appear as mirrors; when on, reflecting LED lights, giving the twisted stair forms an exaggerated “funhouse-like” effect.
The stair’s folded volumes juxtapose solid wood forms with light-filled voids.
The stairs are made of fumed and stained-engineered oak with a solid oak cap. Thanks to its complex geometrically, no level is the same.
The striking interior stair was originally designed as a light well to filter light from above deep into the interior space.
Simple, refined details transform this atrium space into a contemporary, architectural solution that blends nicely with the existing framework.
By incorporating wood slats into the stair wall, light from above is able to pass farther into the space between levels.
The interior stair is composed of floating treads sourced from trees cut down on the  property. A mix of oak, maple, and birch, each step is different and unique.
Wood-clad stair treads and risers are accented by an open, framed wood wall and stone fireplace. The interiors are an assemblage of minimal, raw materials.
Thompson wanted to create "layered and veiled spaces" inside, which was achieved with multiple places to gather in the main corridor. The corridor is open from the second floor down to the basement, and has a combination of skylights and windows for ample light. Paradis MetalWorks supplied the rail and stair stringers.

The home was designed to complement the clients' extensive contemporary art collection. The pendant lighting fixture is by Lindsey Adelman Studio.
The lower floor is built at a high section of the slope—about 1.65 feet below the ground—to create a living area that’s embedded within the terrain.
From the living lounge, wooden stairs lead up to the bedrooms.
A succulent wall adds texture and greenery to the home.
