Building of the Day

123 Melrose Street, Brooklyn, NY 11206

Architect: ODA New York

Local artistry is a recurring theme throughout Denizen, an all-inclusive rental development with 1,000,000 square feet of residential units, publicly accessible communal spaces, and interconnected courtyards, all of which create a layout of woven paths. Join us for a tour of Denizen, best characterized by the seven-story murals showcased on the walls of the glass-sided corridors, each created by a different Brooklyn artist. The scale of the artwork aligns with the scale of the development, unifying a neighborhood rooted in art, community, and expression with modern design and dynamic amenities. All murals are visible from the site’s multiple courtyards, five of which can be seen from the various public parks — a strategic design decision meant to enliven and engage the local community. The murals at Denizen are curated by ODA Architecture and the nonprofit organization OPEN.
