One John Street - New York
One John Street is a design for a new residence on the East River waterfront in Brooklyn, New York.  The design extends the existing landscape of Brooklyn Bridge Park north past the Manhattan Bridge and integrates the building into the park's landscape design.

The memory of the former slips and wharves of the waterfront, as well as the atmospheric elements of the river, together inspired the design for One John. Its form is contemporary and forward-thinking, a weightless moment among the adjacent historic district’s industrial masonry architecture. Wood accents the building’s base, evoking the waterfront’s timbered piers, while the fritted, asymmetrical glass façade of the residential floors above dissipates into the morning mist. The design for One John is inextricable from its plan, and the relationship it creates with the landscape of Brooklyn Bridge Park.
