Residential Building Alteration, Brooklyn NY
TOTAL GFA: 4,628 SF
Residential building alteration in Brooklyn, New York designed by Builtd in 2018 is still under construction. The existing two story brick residential building is kept as an envelope and completely redesigned to inhabit 6 units overall by proposing vertical and horizontal enlargements. Two ADA-compliant studios, two 1-bedroom and two 2-bedroom apartments create diversity in size and selection for its residents. While the studio apartment on the ground floor-South benefits from the 30’ rear yard, 3 other units enjoy balconies and a roof terrace is available for its residents looking at Schaefer Street. The facade alteration carries minimal traces of the contemporary design as well as preserving the original accent of the building in respect to the character and the identity of the neighborhood.
