Rheingold Bushwick

Northern Brooklyn is changing rapidly, and its buildings are increasingly tasked with multi-functionality for its residents. Rheingold Bushwick is a perfect example – a complex of 500 apartments filled with various entertainment zones, designed by Durukan Design, catering to every age group and even pets. The abundance of amenity spaces offered to tenants provides a sense of a growing “interior Bushwick” within the building.

The interior evokes the neighborhood’s industrial roots, with a touch of pop art. The double-height lobby corrals shipping containers, repurposed as private workstations, brightly colored ottomans, and a soaring green wall into a central hub for relaxing and socializing.

Residents and their guests enjoy amenities far from the usual humdrum gym and laundry room. Woven throughout are art and music studios, a film-screening room, nail salon, climbing wall, yoga studio, and squash court. There’s also a full-service coffee lounge, where residents can quickly caffeinate then settle into nearby work and study areas.

The apartments, meanwhile, are unmistakably Bushwick, with concrete countertops and steel-framed glass shower doors. These days, street art’s popularity crosses genres, so graffiti not only accents bathroom tiles, but also echoes the local neighborhood's raw style in large design elements found in the building’s common spaces – including one made especially for the Rheingold by the Bushwick Collective’s 2alas.
