FREEMAN STREET PROJECT

Brooklyn, NY  USA

INFO+

A four unit, four story apartment complex in the Greenpoint neighborhood of Brooklyn uses angled inset balconies and windows to create dynamic front and back façades.  Corten steel panels along the inside faces of the windows accent the black façade and emphasize the angles of the cut outs.  Fiber cement panels on the front façade provide further geometric interest.   The zoning floor area of the site is maximized by the use of balconies and wall types to provide a comfortable square footage for each apartment.  A penthouse provides panoramic views of the East River, Manhattan, and Queens.
