317-319 3rd Avenue
This project transformed the two adjoining 1930s buildings at 317-319 Third Avenue at the border between Park Slope and Gowanus into a new space based on the stunning design by Bernhard Stocker, SOM alum, for the owner/developer Trestle Brooklyn. The building hosts artist studios and offices on the second floor and a veterinary hospital. The Dirty Precious cocktail bar is located on the ground floor.
The gut renovation and extension work included a new full-height extension in the rear yard with a new egress stairwell. The existing façade was investigated and reinforced, new window openings cut and existing ones infilled. Existing floors were reinforced and reframed to account for new flexible layouts.
