This Soho Penthouse Addition Is 'Based in Historic Context'

New, 6 comments

Zar Property NY has filed permits after receiving permission back in January from the Landmarks Preservation Commission to top their condo building at 38 Greene Street with a two-story glass duplex penthouse, designed by Workshop/APD. The design is "based in the language of the historic context—specifically the repetition and proportion of architectural elements, the shadows produced by layers on the facade, and divided glazing patterns," as described by Matthew Berman, a principal at the firm, according to The Real Deal. And, of course, it's based on the historic practice of topping brick buildings in Lower Manhattan with glassy penthouses with private terraces.
