515 Canal Street Penthouse

515 Canal Street Penthouse

This 5,500 sf project repurposes an old paper factory floor and adds a new penthouse and roof terrace. The project design included a reconstructed west façade with a dramatically angled window that frames a protected view of the Hudson River. Despite its urban site the penthouse feels like a secluded pavilion, an island from which the river and Tribeca rooftops are visible.

We manipulated light to create connections between the renovated existing floor and the new spaces above. Light enters the three-level stair and filters through glass treads; a strip of light continues around the perimeter of the living space. Sculptural skylights appear on the terrace as objects in fields of tall grasses.
