- Reclaimed Oak Flooring
Building 92 at the Brooklyn Navy Yard is a public center and exhibition space celebrating the Navy Yard's past, present, and future. The former Marine Commandant's residence, designed in 1857 by the fourth architect of the U.S. Capitol, Thomas U. Walter, serves as the yard's public face, gateway, ambassador and home for the first major exhibition to tell the story of the yard. After the federal government decommissioned it in 1966, the stately building sank into advanced disrepair. BNYDC seized the opportunity to preserve the historic structure for an exemplary demonstration of creative adaptive reuse.
The new design weds the renovated historic structure to a four-story modern extension that houses BNYDC's Employment Center, leasable space, classrooms and meeting/event space. The entire site has received LEED Platinum status from the U.S. Green Building Council, the highest designation for sustainable buildings.
