W Development

Location: New York, USA
Program: Residential and Commercial
Status: Pre-Concept Design
Year: 2023

The development is a mixed-use development, characterized by residential, commercial, chartered school, manor hall and spaces dedicated to non-profit organizations. The site from a conceptual point of view works like a node between different important circulation axis and as a node divides and connect different flow lines. This idea of flows is widely present in nature, when flow lines encounter objects they create ripples. Multiple ripples and lines characterize the design of the façade. The natural aggregations and shifting all echoed in the building overall massing and visual appearance through the interplay of cladding and stripes, creating an innovative balconies pattern.
