The Pearl

New multi-family residential building to serve as the northern terminus of a new and beautifully conceived waterfront park. In designing this project, the issues we thought about [among many others] included: how to create an iconic building that still relates to and reinforces the context of the park and the Dumbo neighborhood, how to choose materials that would create a link between the site’s history and its current use and how the building design could enhance its sustainability and address the realities of the building’s location within a vulnerable flood zone. Project designed by Martin Kapell.
