The Brooklyn Home:
Modern Havens in the City
Since being built in 1892 by Swedish architect Magnus Dahlander, 605 5th Street—the end house of a row of 12—has lived many lives. By the time TBHCo bought it in 2015, the historic space had been long converted into eight apartment units. Since then, we’ve gingerly restored it to its original intent as a single-family home.
Like all TBHCo projects, 608 5th Street accentuates artful living, eco-mildful appliances, and locally-sourced finishes. From the moment you step in the door you’re greeted with integrated art pieces, such as the bar cart in the entryway, which was hand-carved by our Artist-in-Residence, Fitzhugh Karol—just one of many of his pieces incorporated into the home. All 6,300 square feet of the stunning interior are connected through a show-stopping staircase that runs up the middle, and the home has several private outdoor spaces as well.
