640 Broadway
Conversion and Triplex Penthouse Addition

New York, NY  /  In Progress

The very narrow footprint of this building presents a challenge to creating architecturally rich spaces. As an alternative to long narrow plans, we developed a program with the owners to work vertically to create an architectural expression through atriums and monumental stairs. The additional square footage for development has been accumulated in part from mechanical deductions, and in part from creating other double high spaces in lower floors, shifting the space allotment to the more valuable upper units.
