Katherine Newman Design adds Brooklyn-informed aesthetic to luxury residences

Dezeen promotion: real estate developer Extell Development Company opened its Brooklyn Point development of luxury residences last year with interiors designed by Katherine Newman Design to reference Brooklyn's industrial history. Apartments are now available for sale.

The 68-storey Brooklyn Point development is located above City-Point, which is a 600,000 square-foot (56,000 square metre) complex with retail, dining and entertainment in Downtown Brooklyn.

The interiors of Brooklyn Point were created by interior design studio Katherine Newman Design, which looked to incorporate Brooklyn's character throughout the building.

The studio combined the industrial aesthetic of the borough's warehouses with mid-century American and Scandinavian design. This is showcased throughout the building's amenity spaces covering over 40,000 square feet (3,700 square metres) of its indoor and outdoor areas.

On the ninth floor of the tower, the lounge, private dining areas and a demonstration kitchen are adjoined to a wine room, billiard and games room, a screening room, study and children's play room.

These spaces were designed to have both a vintage and antique aesthetic. The studio equipped the floor with metal patinated furnishings and finishes alongside fluted glass light fixtures and wooden furniture finished with natural oils and waxes.

The lounge is enveloped by large glazed walls while glass panels were hung from the ceiling and backlit to create mood lighting.

The 11h floor of the building was designed to reference a Brooklyn warehouse. It houses a state-of-the-art gym and training studios.

Its walls have a painted brick and drywall finish and were trimmed with blackened metal and exposed mechanical elements.

Also on the 11th floor, rock-climbing walls contrast with the mechanical aesthetic of the training spaces and are covered in geometric patterns in orange, red-purple, and white.

A health and wellness area in the lower levels of the building was designed to have a neutral spa-like look and are clad in stone.

The lower health and wellness floor was fitted with a 65-foot indoor saltwater pool clad in stone as well as a squash and basketball court infrared sauna, steam rooms, and hot tub.

On its roof, the development is host to the western hemisphere's highest residential infinity pool, which is adjoined to a sundeck and outdoor movie screening area.
