Chelsea Modern

New York-Northern New Jersey-Long Island, NY-NJ-PA, NY United States

 

Project Description

2012 RADA

Multifamily / Merit

This rippling condo building succeeds on many levels. Sandwiched between other buildings mid-block, its lyrical glass façade stitches together an eclectic neighborhood. The blue color references the sky and the nearby river and High Line parks. “We didn’t want to make a static building, but one about movement from city to water,” says Audrey Matlock, FAIA.

Operable windows arranged within irregular clear glass bands maximize air flow, and street-level, translucent glass-walled units engage passersby. Our judges declared it a smart urban move. “It has a human scale, even though it’s a large building,” one noted.
