Adamson was the Architect of Record for this $90 million, 9-story office building in Manhattan’s Chelsea District. Designed by Gehry Partners, LLC, the building is reminiscent of the boat sails on the adjacent Hudson River. The gross area of the building is 211,000 sf which includes retail/gallery space at the ground floor and typical office space above.
The billowing exterior curtain wall was sculpted with a glass-façade to produce dramatic angles and spectacular views for the interior office spaces.
The design employs super-clear white glass, etched with a white pattern that helps reduce energy costs. The articulation of the glass facades breaks down the bulk.
