Battery Park Fun House

boys room in nyc bohemian apartment

With five kids under 10, this Brook­lyn cou­ple wanted to cre­ate an urban ver­sion of their own Santa Cruz child­hood expe­ri­ence. They com­bined three apart­ments, turn­ing a sec­ond kitchen into a crafts room and a spare bed­room into a full-size playhouse.

They enlisted the help of the archi­tects at Incor­po­rated to tackle the ten-month ren­o­va­tion. The results speak for themselves!

The closet in the girls’ bed­room was con­verted into a play­house for the two sisters.

In the boys’ room, a ply­wood play­house dou­bles as bunk beds for the two boys, com­plete with climb­ing wall and chalk­board. Two spare bunks were added to accom­mo­date sleepovers.

An indoor tree house fills what was once a spare bed­room. Cole & Son’s Woods Wall­pa­per adds an out­doorsy feel to the space.

I totally love this blue piano in the liv­ing room. The children’s art­work is proudly dis­played above it on match­ing blue shelves.
