The Glass Atelier
401-3 Greenwich Street, TriBeCa
The Glass Atelier has a glass facade made of clear glass bricks laid in a running bond with carved glass columns, capitals and details. The transparent design is in the Romanesque vocabulary of TriBeCa with arched lintels, columns with capitals and plinths, setback windows demonstrating wall depth and a corbelled cornice all executed in glass.
The six story building would have contained 2 retail stores and 8 residential lofts with obscure glass partitions.
The Glass Atelier was to be in the tradition of buildings found in the TriBeCa West Historic District interpreted as the transparent facade of the last several decades.
