Project Name: 201 Marion Street Type: Multi-Family Residential Size: Approx. 4500 sq.ft. Location: Brooklyn, NY 11233 Facade Design: Input Creative Studio Interior Design: Input Creative Studio Status: Under Construction
The requirements for 201 Marion was to create a unique facade and overall experience while respecting the existing context. Since the building was frame construction that gave us the opportunity to change the facade's volume while being cost efficient. Our original design consisted of wood strips and zinc panels but due to budget constrain we maintained the same design but instead used painted stucco. The site is sandwiched between a single story church and a typical multi-family brick structure. By observing the horizontal and vertical lines of our neighborhood buildings we were able to create a facade that respected the adjacent buildings and maintained a visual connection to the existing street scape.
