One Madison Park, New York

One Madison Park cuts a svelte figure in the Manhattan skyline thanks to a design concept in which pods cantilever from the buildings main shaft.

CetraRuddy used rooftop dampers to help provide stability and minimize the sway of the 50-story tower.

The firm also placed lateral bracing at the center of the units (between rooms and shafts) instead of the perimeter to reduce the impact on room layouts.

The pods give the structure a sense of lightness, say the architects at CetraRuddy. Floor-to-ceiling glass in each unit provides abundant views of the city.

Massing design.

Becasue of the three-sided glass, almost every kitchen and bath has access to natural daylight.
