96 Woodpoint Road

Project Manager/Designer: Robert M. Scarano jr.

Completion Date: September 2007

Location: East Williamsburg, Brooklyn

Using a palette of metal panel & stucco, a sharp façade composed of angular lines has been pulled from the site At only four stories high, the three double height stories fill the volume of the 60' high building envelope, allowing for dramatic loft-like interiors with floor to ceiling glass. All units have two levels and include open kitchens, generous storage spaces, outdoor recreation spaces, and attractive details that recall elements from the façade within the apartments.

At only 25' wide x 85' deep, this irregular lot is now home to ten families and one office, and signifies the dirsction the neighborhood will be taking under the New York City Quality Housing Program. A self imposed height limitation allowed increased floor areas, and increased density, helping to offset higher land costs. Other zoning bonuses we achieved thru providing outdoor recreation spaces, on site laundry, and street tree planting.
