Luxury residential tower design at 52 East 4th street / 353 Bowery Manhattan NY
A unique residential tower, made of steel and glass and featuring 14 luxury apartments, and has become a symbol of the fashionable NoHo area of Manhattan, due to its slim and tall appearance and the prominent X element in its front.
The building was designed on an L-shaped lot with two entrances from two different streets, while instead of building two separate 5-story buildings, the developer was advised to build 1 high-rise tower that is equivalent to 25 floors with a small floor area of 1200 square feet per floor. The concept of the tower is the connection between outdoor and indoors, which is an analogy of the body-mind connection and the structure is designed in a modern-industrial vibe, made out of a skeleton of steel constructions and glass windows. The retreated location of the tower on the lot, creates a disconnect between the outside world and the private interior.
The tower has 14 loft apartments, with each apartment spreading over the entire floor and rising to a non-standard height of 14’-6” feet. The apartments’ windows extend from floor to ceiling and maximize the entry of natural light into the living space and allow in the breathtaking view of New York City.
The tower also has a shared roof terrace floor with private “cabanas” and a pool overlooking the urban landscape of Manhattan.
The project is the winner of the SARA Design Award of honor in June 24th, 2008
