107-111 Greene Street
Creation of three new seven-story contextual residential loft and store buildings totaling 45,000sf on the original foundations of three buildings substantially demolished in 1923. The three buildings are in the SoHo Cast Iron Historic District.
The design evokes the scale, materials, spacing and rhythm of the Historic District. The façade has exposed riveted steel members which recall the off-site fabricated capitals and bases of its cast iron neighbors. The buildings speak to the progression of off-site pre-fabrication from cast iron facades in the 19th century to riveted steel construction of the 20th century.
The buildings were combined, two elevator egress cores installed, and the interiors designed as 15 residential lofts, including the addition of set-back two-story penthouses.
