Smith Street, which begins at Atlantic Avenue and runs south to Hamilton Avenue, has become the new, trendy area of Brooklyn, recently dubbed by New York Magazine dubbed as "the most innovative, exciting restaurant row" in the city. At the same time, the Boerum Hill section of Atlantic Avenue has become an antique buyers oasis.In the late 1960's, the area had fallen to hard times, with many buildings slated for destruction. Residents banded together to resurrect the area and it was at this time that the neighborhood was officially renamed Boerum Hill.The surrounding vibe of the neighborhood led to a mid 20th century inspired interior design that is "Retro" in its approach, with elements inspired by this style.The interior design encompasses a lobby, public corridors, and apartment interiors for all fourteen units, including bathrooms, kitchens and finishes, incorporating walnut cabinets with inset doors, caesarstone countertops, cherry wood floors, and glass tile accents in the bathrooms.

Context plays an essential role in the concept for this project and is demonstrated by celebrating an advantageous corner condition without obstructing the scale of the surroundings.This four story building boasts six luxury one-bedroom apartments that comprise single, duplex and triplex units. Amenities include bedroom balconies, second floor and rooftop terraces, floor-to-ceiling windows and extraordinary downtown views from every apartment. All open kitchens will include top of the line appliances, stone counter tops, and sandblasted glass cabinetry. The bathrooms will also enjoy a fine array of elegant accessories, first rate fixtures and operable windows.At the first floor, a steel and frosted glass band will run along the length of the building screening six private parking spaces, one for each apartment.This addition will definitely revitalize the neighborhood and create a stronger boundary between the residential and neighboring manufacturing areas.
