Frida Escobedo takes on brownstone Brooklyn with rosy homes on Bergen Street

DESIGNBOOM

Avdoo & Partners Development aims to help Bergen strike that balance between unique and contextually sensitive. Thus, it is designed with a low-stance and rhythmically-pleated facade to create proportions that echo the surrounding townhouses. Its pleated facade, constructed with custom-made blocks that vary in size and opacity, celebrates the interplay of light and air, while its orientation is strategically considered to maximize natural light from both the east and west. The overall design is shaped with a cohesive rhythm in terms of scale, materiality, and color, with porosity and transparency woven throughout the building's form.
