In a historic neighborhood, materials matter. An exhaustive survey of the West Village’s literal building blocks yielded an amalgam of contextually relevant brick for a modern residential development that’s at home in the classic New York City setting. In this six-story design, sections of the façade are carved away to create interconnected indoor and outdoor spaces and terraced apartments at multiple levels, so each luxury residence has the kind of exterior access typically only afforded to penthouses. Corresponding panels above in natural, unlaquered metal were chosen to patina over time and meld with the brick below.
