497 GW BUILDING
CONCEPT: SMART SKIN
This building is comprised of a renovated 6-story SoHo warehouse and an adjacent 11-story addition. The addition’s glass facade cascades over the existing building and down to street level. These inflections in the glass were generated by strict setback laws. The renovated warehouse and adjacent addition accommodate 24 unit owners, a duplex penthouse, wine cellar, fitness center, two saunas, swimming pool, private storage, and a theater/ screening room. Loft 8B resides comfortably within the building, where we translated the architectural design to the interior with a folded bogwood spine that spatially organizes the apartment— separating and connecting, displaying and privatizing.
