West 22nd Street New York by Charles Rose Architects
This project started with an old brick building, just yards from Manhattan’s High Line. Our client wanted a contemporary home in historic Chelsea, plus space for retail and residential tenants. Historic guidelines required that we keep the façade. Everything else on the 50-foot by 100-foot lot was demolished. In its place installed a piling system and steel structure to support the design, which doubled the number of stories of the original building.
