Two Architects & Developers made is big in Brooklyn in 2016. Alloy and Nava both made The Real Deal’s Brooklyn Top Residential Sales in 2016. These results help validate the value that an architect self-initiating their own work can bring to the table.
One John Street was the winning response to a public RFP held by Brooklyn Bridge Park. The design’s simple mass and authentic materiality is consistent with DUMBO’s Historic District. Every apartment layout is designed to capitalize on the exceptional views offered by the site. Unlike most development sites, a careful analysis of the view corridors yields an unusual outcome: The views at the bottom are as good, if not better. Additionally, the upper portions of the building are subject to severe solar and acoustical exposures. A gradient of window sizes afford more masonry to protect the interiors at the upper floors, while on the lower floors larger windows offer broader views to the water and Park. The ground floor contains a restaurant, lobby and annex to the Brooklyn Children’s Museum, open up to the public and surrounding park.
Located in Brooklyn’s fashionable Boerum Hill neighborhood, 210 Pacific Street features full and half floor apartments from 3-5 bedrooms. The building employs Passive House technology and Solar Hot Water equipment to greatly reduce the energy requirements allowing it to meet the 2050 NYC energy goals for housing – decades ahead of schedule. A truly inspiring building featuring sustainable design.The building façade, designed by NAVA and handcrafted in Utah, is comprised of over 13,000 pieces of custom brass three-dimensional tiles. It provides a modern-day façade yet contextual to its turn of the century surroundings.
