VonDalwig Architecture has successfully petitioned the Landmarks Preservation Commission to permit the construction of a single-story penthouse expansion at 405 Vanderbilt Avenue in Clinton Hill, Brooklyn. Following feedback from the commissioners in the fall, the design team reduced the peak height of the volume’s sloped roof by almost two feet, selected a lighter-colored zinc façade, and raised the existing parapet and chimneys by three rows of brick.

Yesterday, the Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC) overheard proposals to construct a single-story rooftop expansion at 405 Vanderbilt Avenue in Clinton Hill, Brooklyn. The two-story townhouse is owned by actress Carmen Ejogo, who has commissioned VonDalwig Architecture to design the addition.
