In Practice

Meaningful Materials

We designed 1 Hotel Brooklyn Bridge to align with Brooklyn’s values, partnering with local artists to incorporate Brooklyn-made furnishings and local materials. Throughout the sanctuary, you’ll find repurposed shipping pallets, furniture made with reclaimed wood from the Domino Sugar Factory, and glass from a Brooklyn-based glass blowing studio. Our design ethos remains true to the history of Brooklyn, nodding to its influential role in the evolution of manufacturing, honoring the influence of the Navy Shipyard, and appreciating all the packing and shipping that used to take place in this space.

Water Management and Stewardship

On the roof of this urban oasis, you’ll find a special rainwater collection system that transports water to our underground tank. We donate this water to the park for sustainable irrigation. For our on-site landscaping, we use irrigation systems controlled by timers and weather-based data. Throughout the sanctuary, we also utilize low-flow fixtures, real-time monitoring, and a base-building filtration system to provide you with high-quality (LEED*) filtered drinking water.
