The Artisan Overview

This small residential condominium building at 406 Lorimer Street in the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn is one of the most attractive in the city.

The architect, Robert M. Scarano Jr., has juggled a variety of different sized rectangular windows with boxy elements of dark red "faux-wood" panels and gray or white stucco to create an excellent example of classic modern architecture.

On its narrow street frontage, the lower three floors are partially setback slightly from the building line adjacent to a mostly blank wall that is perforated by a very tall and very slim window and two miniscule square inset windows.

Around the corner on the larger street frontage is a very large multi-story, multi-paned window with several openable small square windows. Adjacent to this are two smaller but still quite large windows with larger panes. The very large, multi-story, multi-paned window is beneath a slightly protruding box element, setback on two sides, with two quite narrow horizontal windows.

The red masonry of the building is in context with a nearby small builidng and the gray masonry blends well with the pale-green painted façade by a neighboring building.

The building is known as The Artisan Condominium and has 8 apartments. It is about six blocks from the Lorimer station of the L train.

One unit has 16-foot-high ceilings and another has three terraces.

Apartments have central air-conditioning, washer/dryer hook-ups, whitewashed oak floors, and stainless steel kitchen appliances.

The buildings occupy less than a third of the project's 23 acres and they are placed at a fiftee...
