Brooklyn Modern #2: Gut Renovated in Boerum Hill

This week, we're looking at homes featured in Brooklyn Modern by Diana Lind, with photographs by Yoko Inoue. Here's Diana's installment #2:
From the outside, Jordan Parnass's Boerum Hill townhouse looks like almost any other. Inside, he gut-renovated the dilapidated building by keeping only a few small details like a marble mantelpiece and chucking everything else. With about 2,000 square feet to work with, he opened each floor to the next, allowing light to flow through from the third floor's ceiling to the basement which serves as an airy office for his wife. The result is an intensely customized house — from site-specific artworks made by friends to a built-in spice rack for his wife — that perfectly suits his family.
