Location: Greenpoint, Brooklyn

The concept of contrasting transparent and solid is apparent and constant throughout the building; from the basic fa├žade scheme of free-standing walls placed against large panes of glass, to balcony details and the reflective quality of the various materials.

The 9-unit development comprises custom layouts for two and three bedroom apartments, including duplex apartments, terraces, balconies, rooftop areas and a public rear yard that communicates with the building via a steel bridge spanning more than 20 feet over a sunken garden that brings light into the cellar.

Each unit enjoys high ceilings, open kitchens with custom sand-blasted glass cabinetry and top of the line appliances, wide plank floors, luxurious five-piece bathrooms, spacious bedrooms and direct access from the elevator.

Despite its elegant and serene exterior, the building has a distinct ability to blend into its immediate context of neighboring manufacturing buildings yet keep its residential appearance.
