580 Carroll | Ten arquitectos

• July 18, 2010

The building is called 580 Carroll and is designed by world-renowned architect Enrique Norten which has just been completed in the heart of Park Slope, Brooklyn – a rare modern addition to a neighborhood known for its older historic buildings. It is a 17 unit residential building – a five story structure made of concrete with an angular glass facade and a striking entrance made of boardwalk cedar plank that runs alongside the buildings private 3,500 square foot landscaped garden.

The homes feature custom designed kitchens by Enrique, sliding glass walls, balconies, and stunning views of the historic neighborhood. The cedar plank, used generously around the entrance of the building, adds warmth in contrast to the strength and toughness of the raw concrete structure. The building is an interesting addition to the neighborhood which already includes the popular restaurants like AOC and Blue Ribbon Sushi, both just a a block away.

The project is developed by Black House Development – a young, ambitious development group based in NYC, who are also building the new Habita Hotel on 27th Street (also designed by Enrique) which will open later this year. Grupo Habita owns and operates 10 of the most celebrated hotels throughout Mexico, and this will be there first property outside of the country.

    Is it just me or is this a rather disappointing project? …I guess I expected something a little more refined from Ten arquitectos.
