The Most Beautiful New Building in Brooklyn
National Grid Award for Energy Efficiency
The award went to Pierhouse and 1 Hotel Brooklyn Bridge Park, a complex that connects to the park and the street with a web of gentle slopes, stairs, and ramps. All floors in the residential portion have double exposures, creating a natural ventilation system, according to the award-program notes. The building, which contains 195 hotel rooms and 109 residential units, was designed by Marvel Architects.
