2015 Stanford White Award for New Townhouses in Brooklyn

Architectural Design
Manhattan, NY

This new urban development project consists of a row of seven, fifteen-foot wide, single-family townhouses located in downtown Brooklyn, New York. The firm was engaged in the design and detailing of the façades for the row. As the developer insisted on seven units and the house is only fifteen feet wide (normally only enough for two bays) we avoided the monotony of seven 2-bay houses and employed the use of a bow front on every other house. This allowed these townhouses to be read as three bays. For parity, the remaining houses have octagonal bays on the garden fronts. The houses are further differentiating from the alternate entries from ground level to first via stoops. Two-bay alternating pattern, with orthogonal and bow-front facades,  the materials are brick-on-block with cast-stone trim and a sheet-metal cornice, all representative of Brooklyn’s rich architectural heritage.
