138-142 North 10th

20,500 square feet
6 stories, 9 units
Brooklyn, New York

Seamlessly blending Williamsburg’s post-industrial aesthetic with an Italian Modernist sensibility, this new condominium building offers its residents refined modern living in one of Brooklyn’s most charismatic neighborhoods.

138-142 North 10th Street’s industrial-chic façade is comprised of generously sized warehouse windows whose aluminum frames are articulated within a grid of thin brick piers and spandrels above a board-formed concrete base. With a reclaimed look and feel, the piers reference the residential brick box buildings that line 10th street, but the building is unmistakably contemporary. The aluminum window frames project several inches from the façade, creating a new sense of depth and lightness on the block.

The lightness achieved in the façade carries throughout the building’s nine units—a unique mix of triplexes, duplexes, and through-floor condominiums. Refined without being austere, the light-filled interiors reflect a dedication to contemporary craftsmanship, offering residents a singular architectural experience.

The building is replete with numerous opportunities for indoor-outdoor living. Each unit has access to at least one private terrace, as well as a communal roof deck, fully equipped with BBQ stations.

Finished with a discerning palette of rich materials, wide-plank wood flooring is found throughout, with natural stone waterfall countertops and panelized appliances in the minimal but elegant kitchens.
