Lower East Side Residential Tower​

New York City, NY

2011

A new residential building nestled between Soho and the Lower East Side of Manhattan contains nine single-floor luxury units. The façade uses a stock curtain wall system with 20% of the mullions customized into contoured forms that not only conceal lateral structural bracing but to also provide the building’s contoured visual identity.  Nighttime illumination is provided by embedded LED strands bundled behind each curved structural mullion that allow the building to shift between infinite varieties of customizable lighting effects at night. Each floor of the building has private elevator access and views of the linear boulevard park across the street from the project. The duplex penthouse unit is set back from the street to allow for a large entertaining balcony defined by a reinvented structural ‘flying-buttress’ that connects the lower curtain wall system with the mechanical parapet far above.
