Carroll Hall Garden and Event Venue
Ecological conversation site, Reclaimed building materials
A sub-ground building houses a 5000 gallon water tank that collects and filters water run-off for garden irrigation. Most of the interior wood is reclaimed and reused. Many of the bricks used in our 12ft high wall are original or reclaimed.
Carroll Hall is a unique, multi-faceted event venue in the heart of Brooklyn, NY. The venue is available for all types of private events from art exhibits, performances, and film shoots to corporate functions, weddings, baby showers, bridal showers, and birthday parties.
Carroll Hall has a converted warehouse and outdoor garden that can be customized to your event needs. Our private venue also includes a mezzanine lounge overlooking the warehouse; a dining area with a catering kitchen with a sink, commercial fridge, non-commercial dishwasher, tabletop prep space, and an ice machine; and a discreet wooden “treehouse” tucked away in our garden. We have 2 standard bathrooms and 1 ADA accessible bathroom with a changing table.
Carroll Hall and Dameron Architecture were awarded the 2022 AIA New York Design Award, Citation for Reclaiming Urban Space: “The buildings ‘breathe’ with automated natural ventilation. Handmade mosaic murals tell stories of underground creatures. There are moving walls and secret doors. The plants are an idealized woodland, dressed-up cousins of what might have grown along the edges of fields and farms past. Birds, bees and butterflies are invited back. Fountains and water features collect and recycle stormwater for irrigation. A decade of design and construction of this project led to a complex and interwoven series of architectural ideas…There is interdependence between plants, animals, people, and architecture. It is a rare and highly specific formal space in New York City.“
Our commitment to environmentalism is reflected in the sustainable choices our design and architectural partners made as we conceived and built this space, including:
The use of reclaimed brick, wood, and mosaic tiles as structural and design elements.
A system for recycling stormwater to sustain our garden and the birds, bees, and butterflies living there.
A sub-ground building houses a 5000 gallon water tank that collects and filters water run-off for garden irrigation.
Automated windows operating on sensors that provide natural ventilation, assisting in controlling the temperature of our indoor spaces.
We encourage our event partners to make environmentally responsible choices, such as using sustainable inserts for floral arrangements, compostable serving ware (when ceramics aren’t an option), and donating leftover food to community fridges.
