Mulberry House
LOCATION / New York, NY
PHASE / Completed 2013
SIZE / 26,800 sf

Mulberry House is a residential condominium building 13 stories high, with commercial space located at the ground floor and cellar, and 9 residential units above averaging 2,000 sf each.  It is located in New York City’s NoLIta district, across the street from the historic Puck Building. Its proximity to this building, notable for its decorative brickwork, as well as contextual zoning regulations dictating a “predominantly masonry” facade, led to the contemporary reinterpretation of this ancient art form as a design objective.  The rippled brick facade treatment acknowledges the fact that the brick is panelized, not load bearing, and at the same time pays tribute to the highly articulated historic brick facades in the neighborhood.
