The 'Avant Chelsea'

Project by 1100 Architect (Project Manager: Sebastian Kaempf, Designer: Anke Roggenbuck)

This twelve-story residential condominium houses 20 apartments and four floor through penthouses, a roof garden, courtyard and a community facility attached to the rear. The array of side setbacks maximizes the building volume within the constraints of zoning regulations.The graphic rain screen facade at the lot wall is composed from fiber cement panels of six shades of blue. While emphasizing the verticality of the curtainwall front in a meandering line, it provides a distinctive identity to a building type ubiquitous in the New York City landscape
