"...helping to enlighten any Manhattanite or non-city dweller that Brooklyn and its residents are conscious and savvy about design." ~Loft Life Magazine

"These are not glossy magazine interiors; the photos underscore the spaces' unfussy vibe, while revealing the underdog pride that all Brooklynites feel..." ~ReadyMade Magazine

"...an exquisite book for lovers of interior design, modern style, and of course, the enchanting land known as Brooklyn." ~Joyhog.com

“This beautifully illustrated new volume, with photos by Yoko Inoue, pays tribute to the renaissance of modern renovations happening all over Brooklyn.” ~Dwell

I love the style. I'm not from Brooklyn, but whenever I visit my friend's place in Brooklyn I always see these small details. Very original style that reflects modern time. This is more of a smart way to be stylish. Great coffee table piece as well. (Note: I am not an interior designer, but I am a graphic designer that cares)

The photos are too dark and too matte. They're hard to study somehow. Also, as far as I can tell, "modern" means two things:

* Do have custom book cases.
* Don't have any stuff.

Otherwise, it was pretty thin on inspiration.

This is an awesome and colorful architecture book focusing on all types of design in Brooklyn. I find myself picking it up off the book shelf almost weekly. The photos make for great inspiration and work as individual art pieces all by themselves. Pick it up and you won't be able to put it down :-)

I purchased this book because I was looking to buy an house very similar, has a structure, to the ones covered in this book.
In fact is interesting because are reported many different project, in different Brooklyn areas. Mostly like Brooklyn heights and in anycase of a very similar kind each one to the other: a narrow house with a small narrow yard in front and in the back.
The edition is good with well made picture and for most of the project there are plans and section views.
Now I'm not interested any more in the purchase of the house but I own a good book!
