Located in a Brooklyn neighborhood undergoing cultural and economic revitalization, this five-story condominium building offers 45 contemporary one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments created for first-time homebuyers. We creatively oriented the masonry-bearing walls perpendicular to the street and the concrete plank flooring parallel to the street. The resulted savings made it possible to implement floor-to-ceiling glazing in the apartments, locate sonically impervious walls between apartments, and create a delicate pattern of brick piers with glass infill. These effects break the scale of the building down to be in context of the neighborhood fabric of row houses.
To help foster community within the building, we designed a community roof terrace, rear yard garden, fitness room, day-lighted entry, and typical floor lobbies. The resulting homes are beautiful and affordable.
