Design Vault Ep. 29 29 Huron with Vicente Quiroga


Vicente is a project manager with over 10 years of experience and a diverse portfolio encompassing various building typologies, the restoration of historic structures, complex interior layouts, and both public and private work. He is currently managing the construction administration of 1 Huron—a 266,000-square-foot multifamily building with ground-floor retail and a generous package of high-end amenities located along the East River within Brooklyn’s Greenpoint neighborhood. Based on his involvement in the design of the project, Vicente has an intimate understanding of New York City's building codes and requirements related to waterfront development and building within flood zones.



The building is defined by 2 13 story towers connected by a shared lobby whose step forms narrow on the higher floors. The two tower massing maximizes unobstructed views across the East River, taking advantage of its exceptional waterfront location. Due to the building's location in a flood zone, Morris Adjmi coordinated closely with consultants to provide active flood protection solutions such as deployable flood barriers, temporary stairs, flood vents and flood resistant glazing at storefronts. Located within the building's podium, many of the Huron's amenity spaces fall within the design flood elevation, including the indoor pool. Flood resistant glazing within these spaces maintains transparency. The building's glass and steel towers reflect Greenpoint's industrial heritage, while the rough brick podium is inspired by the materials and scale of surrounding warehouses. The heavily gridded facade is comprised of a window wall system featuring I-beam profiles on the pillars.
