Recovery House of Worship
This project is for the re-development of a fire damaged church in Downtown Brooklyn. The context is a transitional zone between the burgeoning arts and entertainment corridor of MetroTech, BAM and the Barclay Center, and the residential neighborhood of Boerum Hill. The site faces onto one of a series of triangular public open spaces that run along Flatbush Avenue, and is across the street from a new 52 story residential skyscraper. Given this dynamic mix the site demands a strong response.
