In an area as artistic as Brooklyn, architects and designers don't need to travel far for their interior design needs. DXA Studio decided to stay local for the fixtures and furnishings for their latest Prospect Heights residential development at 280 St. Marks Avenue. The new development will be decked out with tons of green space, as well as a bevy of cool pieces made by area artists and craftspeople.
Each of the 32 spacious condominiums, which range from $950,000 to $3,749,000, comes with some type of private outdoor space – either a private backyard, terrace, or balcony. Additionally, the five-story, 80,000 square foot development will have ample zones for socializing such as a beautiful rooftop deck with stunning views of Manhattan and Brooklyn. Tenants will also be able to relax in a residents lounge that includes a serene outdoor garden and entertainment areas. The building will also have a children’s playroom and fitness center.
In support of the local crafts scene, DXA Studio chose to use locally-produced fixtures and finishes throughout the building wherever possible. The designers went to local companies like Madera Surfaces for flooring and Klotzwrk for tables. Lighting pendants were found at Brooklyn-based David Weeks and the children’s playroom wallpaper is locally made as well.
Even the artwork chosen to adorn the walls has been curated by Fiercely Curious, a local art collective that represents Brooklyn artists. Not only does the building have ample locally-sourced materials, but also counts on repurposed materials such as the lobby wall paneling, which is actually reclaimed barn siding from The Hudson Company.
Unfortunately, if you’d like to move into one of 280 St Marks Avenue’s beautiful units, you’re all out of luck because the development, which is slated for completion in early 2017, has completely sold out.
