Fire House: Couple turns a 19th century firehouse into a sophisticated living space

This extraordinary adaptive reuse project in Boerum Hill resulted from the collaboration between Julian LaVerdiere and Erica Hohf, owners and designers, and Dameron Architects. The transformation of the mid-19th-century Empire Engine 19 firehouse was carefully curated to amplify the history of the place.

The project included structural stabilization of the building, preservation of the historic facade, and a full renovation that included a new rooftop garden featuring an archery range, a flooded skylight, and a Japanese soaking tub. The ground floor was retrofitted for commercial space and now hosts a coffee shop.
