Architect/Owner of This $800K Park Slope Co-op Gut Renovated it Herself

February 23, 2016

It’s hard to go wrong with an apartment that’s been carefully renovated by its owner, who also happens to be an architect. That’s the case at 404 3rd Street, where a two-bedroom Park Slope co-op has just hit the market for $799,000. The owner, Joana Pacheco, is not only an architect but the founder of Paperhouse, an open source architecture platform. She gut renovated the interior, opening up and brightening the space. She had good bones to work with, as the apartment retains big bay windows and its historic moldings, as well as a good location, just a few blocks from Prospect Park.

The totally white living room is separated from the open kitchen by an island. The whole space is lit by three big bay windows. All that natural light under high ceilings and recessed lighting makes the space look larger and loftier than the actual square footage. And additions like new walnut hardwood floors lend a modern aesthetic to the prewar details.

The kitchen, which carries the “all white” theme, is quite striking. Those are sleek, white lacquer cabinets that are topped with Caesar stone counters. There’s also a built-in, white (of course!) refrigerator.

The master bedroom is located down the hall. It’s not huge, but there’s enough room for added storage/closet space.

And the second bedroom is perfect for a nursery or an office. There’s nothing sprawling about this apartment — which accounts for its under $1 million price tag in a prime area of Park Slope — but good design by its architect owner makes it feel like an open, comfortable home base.
