Pierhouse is the centuries-long culmination of development along the Brooklyn waterfront. Once a rural village, then one of the world's busiest ports, and now a renowned park and residential wonderland, Pierhouse is an opportunity to participate in an evolution in the way people think about "home."
Pierhouse serves as a verdant extension of the park, facilitating pedestrian access through the building, and maintaining water views. Planted terraces traverse the façade, recalling the visual landscape of Brooklyn Heights, gradually stepping down to meet the green lawn. The building presents two faces: one that responds to the fabric of brownstone Brooklyn and the other, which allows every residence to experience unparalleled views of the New York harbor and the park. Metal and limestone reflect the straightforward material integrity of the park design and the white granite of the nearby Brooklyn Bridge piers.
