Industrial Transformation: A New Red Hook Apartment In Tune with the Community’s History

Ground Architecture’s Eli Fernald– the designer, designer, and basic professional behind 96 King Street in Red Hook, Brooklyn– is informing me about a current encounter with passersby outside his structure: “We’re quite near the cruise liner terminals, and great deals of travelers leave and walk the area. One day, I see an older Russian couple, basing on the corner and arguing. They keep talking and searching for at the structure. And, lastly, the person aims to me and asks, ‘Is this constructing brand-new?’ “

The apartment is, undoubtedly, completely brand-new building and construction– however Eli can comprehend the couple’s confusion. He created the three-unit, brick-fronted structure to take a look at house in the historic waterside area, which is understood for its commercial storage facilities and 19th century brick and clapboard houses. “I wished to create the structure in such a way that feels right for the context and restrictions.” he describes. “It felt disingenuous to do something tough modern-day here.”

Rather, he desired both the within and outdoors to be in “the very same language and scale” as the area’s modest architecture, deciding to take advantage of conventional approaches and products (believe lime plaster, terra-cotta, restored pine wood) to equate the brand-new construct into an ageless work.

The raw surfaces carry a “worthy industrialism” that, in System # 2 (presently noted for $2.95 million), is balanced out by modern-earthy interiors by realty stagers and Remodelista favorites Hollister and Porter Hovey “Eli develops with enthusiasm and an individual vision that you do not generally see with brand-new advancements. It’s so revitalizing to discover something that feels totally bespoke,” states Porter.

Above: “With the lime plaster walls and arches, there’s a softness to the area that accommodates a great deal of natural textures, [but] it felt needed to generate some geometry and firmness to the mix, too,” states Hollister. The flooring light is from CB2, the copper side table is from Blu Dot, the slate coffee table is classic. The siblings like to blend in “some essentials from huge box shops to make the area feel available and comfortable to purchasers.”

All the walls in the condominium are lime plastered– providing “subtle flaw and depth,” states Eli– other than for the interior closets and restrooms. “We typically go extremely heavy on art, however those lime plaster walls resemble art in themselves, so there was no other way we were going near them with a hammer or drill,” states Porter. The painting in the living location is attached to a rivet with fishing line.

They actually assist finish the area and play off the light so perfectly,” states Hollister.
