MOD{all}Studio’s proposal – entitled “ECo-ttage” - draws inspiration from the Red Hook neighborhood (which is the southernmost part of the Brooklyn borough) with meticulous use of materials, careful articulation of the residential program, and the integration of several sustainable initiatives (a “UtilitySpine” that stacks mechanical items, and potential solar photovoltaic, rainwater harvesting, and greywater recycling system).

The competition organizers, Realty Collective, cited the design’s simplicity of program, integration into the existing urban context, and inspiring progressive design as reasons for “ECo-ttage” being selected.  ECo-ttage is one of four winning proposals for existing residences on Conover Street which will undergo the transformation, and is anticipated to be completed in Spring 2011. In addition to providing the neighborhood of Red Hook with a renovated sustainable residence, ECo-ttage shall have dramatic view of the Statue of Liberty and Lower Manhattan.
