WAN's exclusive images of Richard Meier's new condominium block 

Surrounded by a bevy of New York’s traditional brownstones and architectural monuments Richard Meier’s latest glass condominium building is certainly an eye-catching addition to the prestigious location from which the building takes its name, On Prospect Park.

Situated perpendicular to the park’s spectacular arched main entrance the 15 storey building benefits from its location both by standing out in landmark fashion and with spectacular views achieved from within. Meier’s design makes the most of these views, which give either a park or a cityscape view, by utilising floor-to-ceiling and wall-to-wall glazing. Acoustic and solar performance is ensured by the use of advanced low-E insulated lamination on the glass and an overall bright and airy design is created.

It is not merely the shell of the building that Meier has designed but features including the kitchen millwork in the 102 condominiums. Large balconies with ipe hardwood decking, terraces with jet mist granite and solid oak flooring throughout ensure that the building teams with the kind of quality indulgence that you would expect from a Pritzker prize-winning architect.

These exclusive first-look exterior pictures of On Prospect Park show how the building integrates into the arty Brooklyn district with distinction.
