Dumbo Townhouses Louvered Facade Panels
“DUMBO” *, a historic neighborhood in Brooklyn, New York has been transformed in recent decades. Today, the former industrial zone is a bustling, mixed-use area filled with galleries,
shops and lofts. The new Dumbo Townhouse development, constructed on the site of an old warehouse is an impressive addition. The building, created by Alloy, is comprised of five,
5-storey luxury townhouses, each about 3,000 sq. ft. (278.7 m2), with private parking, rooftop terraces, 20 ft (6.1 m) ceilings, fireplaces and skylights.
Designed with energy efficient building systems, the townhouses are surrounded by a unique louvered façade panel system made with Ductal® ultra-high performance concrete. Each of the largescale panels contain a series of ribs, covering a total surface area of 8,650 sq. ft (803.6 m2).
