A new luxury condominium is rising in Brooklyn Heights: The Symon. The architecture and interior design for the 13-story, 59-residence is by Damian and Britt Zunino—the husband-and-wife duo behind Studio DB—who set out to strike a balance between contemporary design and the neighborhood’s stately prewar architecture characterized by gorgeous brownstones.

The Symon’s façade features distinctive arched windows, hand-laid, matte-glazed brick and a prominent canopied entryway. Inside, residences boast crown molding details, oversize windows and washed-oak floors with bathrooms in Carrara Crema and Bardiglio Dark marble.

“The details are what make a prewar apartment special, and we were inspired to do this, but through a modern lens,” says Damian. Future residents will also enjoy a rooftop terrace, a lounge and a children’s playroom.
