Text description provided by the architects. Arctangent Architecture + Design (AA+D) in partnership with David Hu Architect PLLC (DHA) are pleased to announce the completion of a new contemporary residential mixed-use development in the Upper West Side of Manhattan. The project, 208 West 96th Street Residences, is the partnership’s first ground-up structure completed in the United States.

This development features nine full floor luxury apartment units in addition to a ground floor commercial space. The main architectural characteristic of this building is an undulating powder-coated laser-cut steel ‘veil’ that becomes both the balcony railings as well as a playful design element for the framing of city views from within the dwellings.

This layered ‘veil’ with its gradated perforations constantly plays with light, views, reflections, and the materialization / dematerialization of mass making it a provocative and dynamic addition to the complex urban fabric of New York City.

Other features of 208 West 96th Street include a custom designed lobby emulating the spatial layering concepts found on the building exterior, as well as overall attention to interior details not typically found in speculative developments.
