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 will contain 2 retail stores and
8 residential lofts with obscure glass partitions.
Glass Atelier will be in the tradition of buildings found in the
TriBeCa West Historic District interpreted as the transparent facade of
the last several decades.
