AA Studio is reimagining the ubiquitous New York townhouse in the Red Hook section of Brooklyn. Replacing a vacant lot, this block-through development of 22 townhomes, is a contemporary interpretation of the classic housing type. Five different building façades, each one inspired by an architectural element – the arch, steel, corten steel, brick, and terra cotta – that is present in Brooklyn, complement each other, and create a rhythmic composition that enlivens the streetscape. The project, which is being developed by Sanba, is currently under construction and is expected to be completed by Spring 2016.
