Aspire Design and Home | Tour The 2022 Brooklyn Heights Designer Showhouse With The Talented Designers That Transformed It

“The 2022 Brooklyn Heights Designer Showhouse, presented by the Brooklyn Heights Association along with media partner aspire design and home, opens on September 23. The historic 1839 townhouse, located at 145 Columbia Heights in Historic Brooklyn Heights, is filled with beautiful, innovative design; from the window boxes and front garden done in tribute to Ukraine, by Serhiy Mshanetskiy of Brooklyn Heights Gardens, Inc. to the rooftop garden accessed by floating stairs, by Nigel Rollings Landscape Design.

Co-chairs of the showhouse, Erika Belsey Worth and Ellen Hamilton, along with BHA president Koren Volk are delighted to present these incredible spaces created by a talented slate of emerging designers, most of them local to Brooklyn and New York City. Volk shares, ‘I really want to stress that our focus this time has been on emerging talent, and we are thrilled with the work this group has done in this house.’

Honorary Design Chair Harry Heissmann, who lives in this beautiful and historic neighborhood, says, ‘Brooklyn Heights always reminds me of Europe. It is a true neighborhood with so many charming corners, and it has become my home. This special neighborhood needs to be protected for generations to come, which is precisely why the work of the BHA is so vital.’
