Structure11 floors, 8 apartment units

Building Description

A mid-rise doorman condo building. Each of the duplex houses can be opened across, exposing the double-height living room. A 20-foot upward pivoting glass wall, coupled with interior sliding doors, can create one vast and uninterrupted loft expanse (Ban's universal floor) which transitions seamlessly from inside to outside, or can be used to partition the space into private areas. The façade's motorized perforated metal shutters serve as a light-modulating privacy screen at the outer edge of each residences's loggia adjacent to the double-height living rooms. The building can literally become a uniform minimal cube, or it can open up completely. The apartments have high ceilings.
