This new private residence in Williamsburg features a gently curved facade that is comprised entirely of red brick and steel openings. Supported by concealed lintels, the compound brick cornice cantilevers behind the streetwall, approximately three feet in length. While the materials may be humble to fit their context, their application culminates in a subtle yet striking addition to the streetscape.
