Williamsburg schoolhouse turned into home

The founders of Brooklyn design studio White Arrow have transformed a landmarked building into a bright home for themselves in the New York borough’s Williamsburg neighbourhood.
The Historic Schoolhouse apartment was designed by, and for, partners Keren and Thomas Richter of White Arrow.
The centuries-old red brick building situated on South 8th Street is Romanesque Revival, and a New York City landmark designated by the Landmarks Preservation Commission.
Measuring 2,000 square feet (186 square metres), the space was formerly part of Long Island Business College, then used as artist lofts during the 1980s.
The entire interior was gutted, and new period details were added to complement the building’s original character, as previously the bare space was lacking in character.
