Q. Let’s talk about some of your projects, starting with two condominium buildings you’re working on in Fort Greene, Brooklyn.
A. They have the same developer, East River Partners, but they’re two very different buildings. One faces South Portland Street, the other is South Oxford. We’re just outside the brownstone historic district. There’s a 60-foot-deep garden that connects the rear of the two.
We have one building conceived to look like a large single residence with a mansard, and inside there are seven apartments. It’s a Federal style. Then, on the other side of South Portland Street, we adopted a different style: It’s designed more like a Parisian 1920s modern stucco building. It’s a more austere front and more modern in its styling and detailing. There are 16 units total.
