Atlantic / Fulton Affordable Housing

Brooklyn, NY

Two buildings inherent to the development of a residential tower and Brooklyn Public Library at 280 Cadman Plaza West, with a total of 114 affordable units, are located in Clinton Hill. The two buildings are prominent neighborhood anchors on major thoroughfares. Reflecting the design of 280 Cadman, 911 Atlantic Avenue, and 1041 Fulton Street have façades that attempt to move away from traditional affordable design with uniquely sized bricks of recycled material arranged to bring texture to the lower floors. The patterned base will create interest at street level in harmony with the height of adjacent buildings. Similar to 280 Cadman, elongated fenestrations exposing two and three windows mimic the rhythm and façade proportions of the tower.
