This project is an 8-family condominium complex, located in the trendy Brooklyn neighborhood of Williamsburg.

This area is considered to be Brooklyn's answer to Manhattan's SoHo, with small boutiques and multi-cultural restaurants lining Bedford Avenue.

The building consists of 2 duplex apartments on the first floor, and 2 apartments.

The design concept for the facade was drawn from the industrial quality of the surrounding buildings, utilizing modern building technologies such as a glass curtain wall with massive steel beams.

When completed, the building will contribute to the local community by stretching the boundaries of typical brick buildings that surround it.

The glass components of the facade, as well as the apartment balconies, are treated with varying levels of opacity, which convey a sense of openness, while providing privacy for the spaces behind it.
