This 4000sf townhouse, a private residence in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, revives a historic construction technique that is unique to this neighborhood in New York, but updates it with design features and details that reinterpret the townhouse typology. Wood frame townhouse buildings are highly unusual in New York City, but this area of Williamsburg is full of the. We responded to this context by reconstructing a 2,000 square foot wood frame building in place of the original structure that was on the site. A steel-and-glass structure on the upper levels adds another 2,000 square feet. The bay window is interpreted here as a dramatic floor-to-ceiling prismatic glass wall on the upper levels. The building is clad in a Manganese Ironspot Artisanal Brock, Mahogany Frame windows, and Flush-Glazed Large Panel glass. These textured, refined materials at once relate the building to adjacent brick structures, and set it apart with contemporary detailing.
