Studio DB evokes chic past through modern lens in Brooklyn Heights residential project

Studio DB, a Manhattan based design firm headed by partners Damian and Britt Zunino, recently completed The Symon, a luxurious condominium project in Brooklyn Heights.

“Our studio thoughtfully crafted the 59 stunning residences, including three penthouses that crown the top of the building, as well as all of the amenity spaces and captivating, pre-war facade. We hand-selected signature finishes inspired by the past that also make a strong modern statement, creating comfort in every space as well as giving the building its own bespoke identity. The sophisticated design starts at the one-of-a-kind entry foyer of the residences, featuring large solid panel doors, crown molding accents, eight-inch baseboards as well as inlaid wood flooring medallion with a basket-weave motif (also present within the lobby). Oversized divided-light windows and custom washed-oak floors fill each residence with natural light and warmth. Graciously proportioned kitchens feature custom raised-panel cabinetry, marble countertops and high-end appliances like Bluestar and Thermador, while bathrooms offer refined material selections, diamond tile patterns and master bath fixtures in antique brass from Waterworks. Evoking the past through a contemporary lens and drawing inspiration from the historic buildings and elements of the surrounding neighborhood while seamlessly incorporating modern details, The Symon’s façade is made up of hand-laid brick, distinctive arched windows and a prominent canopied entry, thus giving the building a pre-war feel that evokes the character and distinction of the neighborhood’s treasured brownstones and grand apartments. Within The Symon’s sales gallery, we have recreated a model apartment to mimic what’s to come for the under construction project set to commence closings in late Spring 2020,” explain Damian and Britt Zunino, founders of studio
