1000 Dean Street

Brooklyn, NY

This historic Studebaker service station was renovated and repurposed as office and studio space for Brooklyn’s creative community. Originally built in the 1920s, the 155,000 sf structure required a complete exterior and interior renovation.

Selldorf Architects transformed the four-story building by introducing two 8’ x 92’ skylights which bring daylight to the deep floor plates. The building’s raw industrial spirit was preserved and updated with modern mechanical systems, IT infrastructure, a central circulation core including elevator and connecting stair, and roof-top photovoltaic panels.
