Finding the perfect mix of unit size and exterior style can make one project more successful over another.

Constructed in an area of small multifamily mid-rise masonry buildings, this uniquely designed structure houses eight families in a condominium complex of three buildings.

With two apartments on each of four floors, each unit has front and rear exposures.

The concept for the plan layout was achieved by interlocking and reversing a mirrored geometry, which helped maximize the square footage per room in each apartment.

This concept also fostered the undulating masonry facade pattern that is key to the clean look of the building. By expanding the height to the maximum limits permitted by the New York zoning resolution, this small building makes a big statement.
