ODA Architecture has shared with us “510 Driggs,” a multi-family residential project that aims to provide residents with the “qualities of a private house” within Brooklyn’s dense urban landscape. Each of the six-story building’s 100 units will be equipped with a large, functional outdoor space and at least two exposures to maximize light and air.
“What if we could live in cities where everyone could enjoy similar qualities of a private house,” asked ODA. “We then challenged the zoning rules and regulations and the very common fundamentals and typologies of typical apartment buildings and came up with a scheme that satisfies all of the above. The complexity of the form serves a noble function while also becoming a beautiful piece of architecture.”
Construction is expected to begin June 2015.
