A multi-use tower project located in downtown Brooklyn. The drive of the design for this tower revolved around the concept that the facade and interior would weave in and out of each other depending on the inhabitant’s location within. 

A typical, fully residential floor maintains two crescents on the east-facing side of the building, while the “flex” floors, which encompass the mixed-use spaces of each floor, follows the overlapping of additional crescents.

The changing of these shapes pushes and pulls the facade. The building is also located on a triangular lot, which was a determining factor for the two flat facade sides.
