At 139 Meserole Street, a condominium in East Williamsburg, the architect Anthony Morena opted for a zinc shingle facade that recalls the neighborhood’s much-maligned exteriors — an approach that the development blog New York YIMBY called “vinyl revival.”
Sure, this gritty East Village enclave saw its fair share of shenanigans related to drug use and violent crime not terribly long ago, and perhaps that’s one reason why new housing construction here has remained relatively dormant — until now.
Provocative artwork, some depicting Cubist nudes, children’s toys and explosives, that was splashed across walls in the empty building, a former rental at 324 East Fourth Street, and discovered by Mortar Architecture and Development, the developer, has been professionally photographed for posterity. And buyers in the 11-unit, seven-story project, named Altes House, will receive these framed photos as gifts, to preserve the building’s legacy.
Situated on Manhattan Avenue near Powers Street, 245 Manhattan represents a collection of 10 exceptional residences which provide a unique interpretation on classic theme. The building façade is carefully composed relationship of sustainably sourced - Japanese inspired Shou-Sugi Ban – charred wood cladding, a reclaimed cypress wood canopy, steel, and glass. The homes include a mix of 2 and 3 bedroom residences, duplex town homes with private street-level parking and landscaped gardens, and detailed penthouses with innovative building systems, floor-to-ceiling glass windows, landscaped terraces and a rooftop lounge. In addition, residences feature direct elevator access, open kitchens and modern custom baths.
Located in one of Brooklyn’s oldest and most iconic neighborhoods, this 10-unit residential building exemplifies the firm’s approach to architecture and development. Mortar integrated recovered materials from the building site, as well as locally sourced and re-claimed building products, into the design and construction. The approach substantially reduced costs for investors, while resulting in an environmentally responsible building whose modern aesthetic harmonizes beautifully with its historic setting. Each living space is uniquely is tailored to meet the needs of modern individuals and families.
