Project name: Wythe Corner House
Project location: Brooklyn
Firm name: Young Projects
Jury comments: Not just the addition but the subtraction of space makes this intervention in an existing 1900s townhouse surprising, successful, and full of personality throughout. The creative, well-executed approach to this project might serve as a model for other multifamily projects, given the urgent need for more affordable and delightful housing in constrained urban settings.
