250 Bowery

Designed in collaboration with Aldo Andreoli, 250 Bowery is a contemporary glass and metal loft building that stands in stark contrast with the mix of nineteenth-century buildings lining Bowery. Although designed with the future of the neighborhood in mind, it strives to be sensitive toward its present context as well, with a sober, industrial-inspired facade that helps mitigate the building’s perceived scale while giving it a surprising depth. Metal channels, flat panels, and factory-sash windows divide its basic mass into layered grids accentuated by light and shadow. The eight-story building houses 24 condominium units, including duplex penthouses, and has a landscape terrace on the roof and retail and exhibition space at ground level. 250 Bowery was one of the first upscale residential buildings constructed on the historic street. Along with the nearby New Museum and other projects, it’s reinvigorating the neighborhood with a new architectural scale and new cultural amenities
