This elegant 21-story pre-war building, situated in the heart of the Upper West Side of Manhattan was designed as a standard residential building. Working within the constraints of the existing footprint and structure, we reorganized the space on the cellar level and first floor for resident amenities and building support. The view from the rooftop and penthouse are optimized by the reprogramming of the upper floor as a spa and fitness area. The sophisticated interior design of all public spaces reinforces the benefits of the facility’s urban environment. Particular consideration was given to phasing of the design as the building was continuously occupied during construction. The renovation comprises approximately 40,000 sf.
