100 Norfolk Street in New York by ODA–Architecture P.C.

Saturday, December 15th, 2012

Article source: ODA–Architecture P.C.

Located at the Lower east side Manhattan, one of the most significantly diverse areas of New York City, 100 Norfolk Street expresses unlimited potential and ambition hidden within its block. Peering above its small lot, the 12 story building is combining its mass from the surrounding properties to create a stepping volume which cantilevers over the adjacent low rise buildings like an inverted \”wedding cake\” or ziggurat. The unexpected massing, cladded in a glass curtain wall, reflects a paradoxical mid-block freestanding building offering striking views and strong interior light exposure for an array of residential spaces – a pendant above the city.
