Shop architects completes exterior architecture of 57th avenue supertall

a slender new york skyscraper

 

slender and supertall, Store architects‘ 111 west 57th avenue skyscraper sees the completion of its exterior architecture. the tapering tower has step by step grow to be a new icon for new york‘s skyline with its basic, stepping facet profile, and has now produced its mark on the metropolis at the foot of central park.

 

mounting to a top of 1,428 feet (435 meters), the tower is the tallest household building in the western hemisphere. it emerges from the landmarked ‘steinway hall,’ developed in 1925 by the architects of grand central station and residence steinway & sons piano business. honoring the craft of the steinway piano together with the critical connection to old new york, the tower integrates meticulous ornamentation together its facade and interiors (see designboom’s past coverage in this article) which reinterprets historic motifs with a modern day expression.

 

Shop architects is at present approaching the completion of its ‘brooklyn tower’ close by (see designboom’s protection in this article) which rises from the landmarked dime lender in a identical way. like the brooklyn tower, 111 west 57th road is created with a respect for the architecture of the previous, looking backward to build a new structure language.

attention to craft: an homage to old new york

 

Shop architects integrates terracotta detailing into the facade of its 111 west 57th street tower. when the fabrication of these meticulously intended components are unachievable without having the use of present day know-how, the artisanal content can be traced again throughout new york’s architecture to about a century.

 

each terracotta panel is separately forged, fired, and hand glazed. at the moment repetitive and varied, this procedure includes 1000’s of forged panels that wrap the east and west facades of the tower. over-all, the impact is a radiantly striated sample that accommodates delicate openings is glass and bronze. the workforce at Shop designed 20-six panel varieties which were blended into an harmonious entire, ‘poetically expressed like notes into a chord.’
