This freestanding 6,000 square foot single-family house in Midwood, Brooklyn uses a partially existing house foundation and fully maximizes the zoning envelope to allow for two full stories and a habitable attic. A series of fanning louvers provide a brise soleil for the window wall at the ground floor facing the street. An over-sized window at the second floor master bedroom allows for clerestory light and plays with the scale of the whole.
