Description Show more
Poised on riprap overlooking the water, the boathouse sits along the Pier 5 Uplands of Brooklyn Bridge Park. The one-and-a-half mile long park has transformed the former industrial waterfront into an exemplar of urban landscape design. Providing secure open-air boat storage at grade level, with a multipurpose room and public restrooms on the upper floor, the architecture of the 5,000 SF boathouse is purposeful, economical, and resilient. Galvanized steel, gray fiber cement panels, anodized aluminum grilles, exposed concrete floor, and plywood interior walls are composed to elevate the quality of this prosaic building.
