Rogers Marvel Architects

Brooklyn, NY
Rogers Marvel Architect's design for this Brooklyn urban renewal site creates a respectful dialogue between old and new. Taking design cues from the historic National Register houses adjacent to and across from the site, the new townhouses' subtly varied façade planes and contextually sensitive materials make a visually compelling and neighborhood-friendly street front. The project is an anchor for the area's broader redevelopment and reconnects the site to its brownstone neighbors in historic Boerum Hill, Brooklyn Heights, and Cobble Hill. The project qualified for NYSERDA (NY State Energy Research and Development Authority) support, and RMA used energy modeling to direct the design of building assemblies. Key mechanical components, including furnaces, condensers, and water heaters, exceed required standards. An energy recovery unit makes the heating and cooling systems more efficient, and all windows are insulated with low-e coatings and argon-filled airspaces.
