550 Vanderbilt Apartments / COOKFOX Architects

April 24, 2019 Paula Pintos 0

550 Vanderbilt is a 278-unit residential building located in Prospect Heights, Brooklyn. The design and construction are driven by two prominent features of the surrounding neighborhood: the architectural character of the streetscape, and eight acres of new, publicly accessible greenspace that defines the site. The resulting relationship between landscape and architecture make 550 Vanderbilt a fitting transition between the streetscape and the new park, designed to pull in nature at all scales for the health and well-being of its residents. It is a project that mediates between the smaller scale of the brownstone and the creation of a sustainable, higher density urbanism.

For residents, the openness of this site is the perfect condition for bringing in the scenery of Riverside inside the house. For neighbors walking along the riverside, it’s a great chance to see the change of the building while walking along the riverside. Also, it would be completely different to observe the building in a height of river bank and on a road.
