The Warehouse

The Inverted Warehouse Townhouse is an addition and renovation of a Tribeca loft building. Conceived as an excavation of dissipating energy, three double story volumes are voided from the center of the building. Into this space are hung self structuring corten steel panels which are layered, shingle-style. The layering of the shingles allows for frameless burgundy wall art glass to float down through the walls. The downward dissipation culminates in the double story book shelves which hang into the children’s playroom. Countering the downward hanging of spaces is a courtyard layer of silicone glazed glass which delicately lifts to the skyline.
