Last week H3 Hugh Hardy Architecture Director of Interior Design Margaret Sullivan (also a Hot Seat subject!) showed us around the Theater for a New Audience construction site on Rockwell Place. The theater, designed for the Shakespearian New York City-based theater group, should be complete by the summer. The TFANA has worked with the architects and the city to bring this theater to Brooklyn for nearly 13 years. Now it’s the first construction project on the city-owned lot which will also be home to the Two Trees development, another affordable development, a public plaza, and a hotel. Click through for lots of pictures of the in-progress interior space and all the details on the build…
The black matte finish is on full display on the back exterior wall, alongside Rockwell Place.
The full-height glass wall of the theater (facing Ashland Place) will allow a seamless transition from the lobby to the outside arts pavilion. The floor design of the lobby will mimic the design of the pavilion.

Right now the terrazzo flooring is going in.

This is the future box office.
Shots of the theater construction. The design is inspired by the Cottlesloe Theatre of Britain’s Royal National, an intimate, two-tiered theater space with a flexible floor and seating area. This theater will also have a flexible seating arrangement.

Property owner Infinity Real Estate recently filed new building applications for 1245 Fulton Street in Bed Stuy, where Planet Fitness inked a lease in October. Although the gym had reportedly originally planned to add a second story onto the existing building, now it looks like the landlord is planning to build an entirely new one-story […]
This seems like such a cute house at such a good price for Brooklyn. We like Wallabout and we like the renovation, which features a steel and reclaimed wood staircase, teak hardwood floors, Carrera marble counters in the kitchen, and lacquer cabinets. All the mechanicals are new, as is the siding, windows, roof, and skylights. The […]
The layout of this new listing at 25 Plaza Street in Park Slope is a little unusual. It’s listed as a studio but it’s really more of a small one-bedroom, depending on how you’d plan to use the space. The 500-square-foot pad is on the second floor of the 1941 doorman building. The wood floors […]
This two-bedroom floor-through in Windsor Terrace has some lovely prewar details. The ornate fretwork screen is very pretty, and there are some nice moldings on the walls and around the windows, along with a decorative fireplace. The kitchen and bathroom both seem serviceable and clean, though maybe not exactly modern. However, the kitchen looks quite […]
