10 MONTIETH

ODA Architecture as Architects

With today’s social and technological paradigms in mind, 10 Montieth invites residents into a ground-breaking world of accessibility and connectivity, one that celebrates user experience and champions shared perspective. Encapsulating one full block in Brooklyn’s coveted Bushwick neighborhood, 10 Montieth’s distinct modular form holds studio, one, and two-bedroom apartments at affordable and market rates, each pixelating the building’s façade with cascading terraces. Here, living space extends beyond each apartment’s four walls with ample outdoor space: the sloping rooftop garden is primed for group activities or moments of solitude while the inner courtyards serve as unexpected urban retreats.

Where most residential buildings play it safe, 10 Montieth breaks the mold. The O-shaped height is lowered in key areas to increase sunlight exposure for the courtyard and interior facades while tethering the building to the community with a scaled down vertical footprint. Similarly, the sloped roof creates unique points of access from the top levels of the building and the structure’s shape allows for views of Manhattan from street-facing and inner courtyard apartments. A living, breathing canvas of expression for its residents and community, 10 Montieth is the ideal address for New York’s next wave of visionaries.

The Rheingold

CRL as Manufacturers

At seven stories tall, 500 units, and occupying 489,000 square feet of real estate, The Rheingold is one of the most expansive multi-family developments in Brooklyn to date.

The upscale complex boasts several in-demand amenities including two courtyards, a game room, state-of-the-art fitness center, movie theater, coffee bar, and 60,000-square-foot rooftop deck with striking views of the Manhattan skyline. These amenities offer residents places to socialize, creating a sense of community that elevates the neighborhood’s cultural identity.

The Rheingold’s claim to fame is not only its city-block size and engaging amenities, but also its colorful and distinct modular form that breaks the mold of the surrounding homogenous architecture. The façade reveals two staggered layers that illustrate texture, contrast, and depth. Recessed windows are wrapped in extruded aluminum frames that are powder-coated in a conspicuous color spectrum ranging from yellow to red. Finally, exterior walls are clad in corrugated metal panels that convey a visual connection to the area’s industrial past.

A defining architectural element of The Rheingold is its vast grid of balconies that extend from nearly every apartment unit. The balconies overlook either the lively courtyards or bustling city streets, initiating a seamless dialogue with the surrounding environment.

C.R. Laurence manufactured and supplied over 6,000 linear feet of its GRS TAPER-LOC® Glass Railing System to enclose each balcony and protect residents. The railing system is the first and only ICC-ES approved glass guardrail available in the marketplace. This simplifies specification because the certification ensures it will be accepted by code officials nationwide.

The GRS TAPER-LOC® Glass Railing System improves safety while enhancing aesthetics with all-glass visuals and promoting daylight diffusion to help produce vibrant interiors.

The Rheingold symbolizes the evolution of Brooklyn’s Bushwick neighborhood from a manufacturing hub to an urban playground. Its grand scale and robust amenities together create a self-contained village that merges culture and entertainment, resulting in a dynamic residential community.
