A sustainably-designed mixed-use residential & commercial development at the corner of Lexington and East 86th Street in New York City, with units ranging from two- to five-bedrooms. The façade is conceived as a “living” surface, with sliding shades reflecting changing patterns of use throughout the day.
The building also incorporates the idea of double-storey, landmark “lanterns” lit up at night at the penthouse level. Utilizing clean air systems, healthy materials and improved circulation to on-site public transportation, the project will pursue LEED certification.
