Red Hook Green is a 4,000 square foot, live-work residence incorporating a studio/workshop, offices for a digital business, garages and an apartment, as well as outdoor green space. The building is located in the Red Hook neighborhood of Brooklyn and is inspired by the stacked shipping containers of Red Hook’s working waterfront. Like shipping containers, the modular units of which it’s built are stacked and shifted creating a variety of terraces and angles designed to take advantage of the area’s impressive harbor views.
Simple and cost effective techniques are used to produce energy, conserve resources, and create a healthful environment. The sustainability strategy for the building was developed though extensive research that included digital energy modeling and detailed life cycle cost analysis.
