135 Joralemon is an extremely rare survivor in New York City.  It is a Federal-style townhouse built prior to 1833.  The house has survived the vicissitudes of time, neglect, and fire, and had been abandoned for nearly two years prior to the start of the project.  The restoration encompassed both exterior and interior work.  Sensitivity to finishes that were complementary without being imitative highlighted the nuances of the building’s original character. 

The renovation of this historic building included the installation of all new mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems, in addition to central air conditioning equipment that is not visible from any point at the exterior of the house.

The project was a winner of the 2008 Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce ‘Brooklyn Builds’ Award and the Lucy G. Moses Award from the New York Landmarks Conservancy.
