Brassy Brooklyn Kitchen

By Dwell @dwell
For a family of three in the grand old Brooklyn apartment we featured in our story Top Brass, an updated kitchen meant rich materials, a warm walnut slab, and custom woodwork by Marcus Bartenschlager all courtesy of their architects Workstead. The real masterstroke is all that brass, touches of which include a chandelier that Workstead designed, a custom range hood from Rangecraft, and a faucet by Rohl that the architects had stripped and plated in brushed brass. “The use of brass throughout the apartment was a decision that we made early on," says Workstead founder Robert Highsmith, "to both speak to the clients sensibilities, and our own desire to have a warm, bright tone in the apartment.” Bartenschlager designed the white cabinets and is responsible for the walnut counters both on the kitchen island and near the stove. minimalist high-design apartment in Brooklyn
