The site is located in New York City’s Tribeca area and was being used as a parking lot. We envisioned a tall, dramatic, and modern statement that would maintain the same vernacular as the surrounding edifices, which were built a century earlier. A grid work of glass replaces the grid of windows and
apronounced structural, angled roof replaces the cornices that adorn its elder
neighbors. The staircase is revealed and becomes a feature of the façade instead of being hidden away at its core. The site’s triangular shape adds to the building’s bold stance in a defiant posture.
