About the Site

Recently completed, 158 Clifton is a two family timber framed row house in Brooklyn’s Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood. The row house is a unique showcase of reclaimed wood and built to Passive House EnerPHit standard.   It is a modern interpretation of a traditional wood clapboard row house.The row house was easily adapted to meet passive house retrofit ultra low energy use, with an expected 70% reduction in heat and cooling load. Because of the reduction in energy use no fossil fuel is being used on site.


The renovation was an extensive use of reclaimed wood from New York. The front façade is an old growth Douglas Fir utilizing the traditional Japanese art of charring exterior siding, Sho Shugi Ban. The rear façade is recycled Ipe from the Coney Island boardwalk.  The use of Coney Island boardwalk creates a modern rain screen and stark contrast to the front. This renovation reduced the energy demand of the building to the extent that the planned rooftop solar installation brings the Owner’s unit into Net Zero capability.


The woods in the triplex of the house generally follow the geographical area where they were originally harvested. The parlor floor us made of Southern Long-leaf Pine and this wood follow through the common areas. The second floor bedrooms include a mix of mid-Atlantic hardwoods. The top floor loft is antique Eastern White Pine. The homeowner is developing the top floor loft is dedicated to hosting sustainable salons and educational programming.
