Alloy Design : Dumbo Townhouses

It is in the fashionable Brooklyn neighborhood of New York (USA) that the Alloy Design agency designs the Dumbo Townhouses, a set of five strip houses with a total area of ​​1 672 square meters of flooring. A project that takes place on the parcel of a former warehouse, the destruction of which offers new housing opportunities in a popular part of the Big Apple.

Eager to maintain the industrial aspect that characterizes the site, the master builders imagine a massive set of concrete, aluminum, wood and bronze, consisting of five four-storey villas attached, positioned at the corner of Pearl and Water Streets. So they are indeed townhouses that hide behind a unified facade! And despite their location in a very dense neighborhood, these homes all have a small garden in the back.


The ground floor of each dwelling, with the same plan, houses a garage to the west and to the east, a room that can be used as an extra bedroom, an office or a playroom. On the upper floor, a living space including kitchen, dining room and living room takes place under an impressive ceiling height of 6 meters including a central mezzanine.

The two following levels are dedicated to the spaces of night with, a parental suite - composed of a room part, a bathroom with bath-tub and a big dressing -, then on the last floor, two other parties separated by a piece of water.

The whole is overlooked by a roof terrace with a pergola, allowing its residents to enjoy views of the city that never sleeps.
