“XXI century house with the quintessence of 100 years ago” and presented the jury of the prestigious 2010 AIA Housing Award for this work of Rogers Marvel. This set of terraced houses sits on a plot of eight million square feet in Brooklyn halfway between the business district of the New York district and residential area of the more traditional.
Trying to maintain the flavor that characterizes nineteenth adjacent buildings, has been given great prominence to the brick factory. The architect shows great sensitivity to the environment, taking care of details, from the typical New York’s stairs, to the appropriate size of the openings, each element seeks harmony of classical architecture with the current. The variety of facades that are breaking the monotony in the design.
The interiors are designed instead for the XXI century, without any ruthlessly in the past. With large open spaces and light, featuring a large window overlooking the backyard.
