The joint compound was still fresh when a couple on the verge of having their first child took possession of this two-bedroom condo in a barely finished building on the edge of the brownstone belt. The apartment has some very positive things going for it, including a large outdoor terrace with a sweeping city view. The developer’s kitchen was uncommonly attractive. Existing wide plank floors were another plus.

And the rawness was soon dispelled by architects Andrea Fisk and Jess Hinshaw of Boerum Hill-based Shapeless Studio, who warmed up the space and made it inviting, comfortable and functional for the young family.
