Located in the heart of Brooklyn Heights, the historic Standish Arms Hotel — which may sound familiar to comic book fans, as it was the Metropolis home of Clark Kent — has been transformed into condos with a stunning model residence furnished by Matter.
First designed by F.S. Lowe in 1903, the classic pre-war Beaux-Arts, 12-story building is situated just off the Brooklyn Promenade with stunning panoramic views of the city. Converted from rental units into luxury condominiums by DDG, together with Westbrook Partners, The Standish is now revealing a first look at its new contemporary interiors. They boast a model residence, Residence 3C, that has been furnished and accessorized by the respected contemporary gallery and showroom Matter, in collaboration with DDG’s design team.
Drawing inspiration from the building’s history, Matter was able to create a modern Brooklyn ethos that naturally melds with the character of the building. Using a foundation of classic materials such as brass, wood, and marble — all of which reflect the finishes and materials incorporated into DDG’s design of the units — the team was able to build upon this warm and neutral framework, and play with color and texture to create a vibrant contemporary feel.
The Standish is Matter’s first foray into furnishing model residences and naturally, the company incorporated a selection of pieces from their in-house Matter Made collection in order to establish a colorful narrative throughout the home.
The Standish recently broke the record for the most expensive condo sale in its Brooklyn Heights neighborhood, with its 10th-floor residence going for $11.65 million.
