Located in the Gramercy Park neighborhood of Manhattan, 160 East 22nd Street is a 21-story, 84-unit condominium apartment building. In addition to luxury residences, the building includes ground loor retail space. The design is based on a modern interpretation of the elegant and timeless classic pre-war apartment buildings in the neigh-borhood. The limestone clad building’s massing is sculpted to incorporate a 24’ cantilever, and punctuated with alternating deep set fenestration pattern.
As with the exterior design, the interior is comprised of classical proportions and contemporary character. A well-balanced variation of noble materials and details throughout the building creates a sleek style with a touch of luxury vintage, all executed by local craftsmen.
Overall, 160 East 22nd Street’s design aims to blend classic contemporary lines with historic contextual influences, resolving complex vernacular New York City regulations, while meeting the fine aesthetic and pragmatic needs of its end users.
S9 Architecture believes each design solution is informed by programmatic, physical, environmental, economic and contextual forces, rejecting pre-conceived ideas and stylistic preoccupations. With a design approach rooted in modern contextualism and inspired by urban narratives, S9 Architecture’s works include residential, mixed and adaptive reuse projects. Among them are 205 Water Street in Brooklyn (2012), 160 East 22nd Street in Manhattan (2014) and Ponce City Market in Atlanta (2015). Currently under construction in New York City are The New York Wheel, Empire Stores and 606 Broadway, all expected to be completed by 2018.
