785 DEKALB AVENUE
Location : 785 Dekalb Avenue, Brooklyn, NY
Planning, exterior, and interior design of a new 6-story residential building, consisting of 70 apartment units and approximately 63,311 sq ft. The exterior was designed to flow with the artistic community surrounding the property. The result is a simplified brick and metal clad façade, utilizing wood planks salvaged from the wreckage of Hurricane Sandy. The overall design mixes sleek and rustic as a contemporary nod to the manufacturing history of the area. Most unique to 785 Dekalb is the full-height atrium, which extends throughout the building’s 6 stories. Amenities include a 5th-floor library lounge with wet bar and television, 6th-floor game room, and fully featured cellar-floor gym, bike storage, and laundry.
