Morris Adjmi Architects

16 West 21st Street

This distinctive 15-story residential building combines the historic vocabulary of New York’s Ladies Mile Historic District with a facade constructed entirely out of glass materials that have been slumped, pressed, or carved to create the façade’s columns, spandrels, and cornice. The building recalls the classically proportioned “White City” architecture of the 1893 Chicago World’s Fair that was so influential in the surrounding historic architecture of the Flatiron. The building features nine full-floor luxury loft residences, a garden level duplex, and a penthouse triplex.
