Details on David Chipperfield's first large-scale residential project in New York has been revealed. The last development to take place at Bryant Park, The Bryant condominium tower will feature 57 one to four bedroom residences, including two triplex penthouses, on a boutique hotel at 16 West 40th Street. The HFZ Capital Group development was designed with Chipperfield's "intelligent simplicity," as the architects describe. Each residence will occupy a corner of the tower.
“The idea that the structure and the façade are the same thing, made out of polished concrete, will give the building a tectonic and physical presence. Through this, the building is reduced down to elements of columns and windows, of solid and void, mass and space,” said David Chipperfield. “I think you can make architecture out of very simple things, it doesn’t have to be complicated. The difference between a good building and a bad building normally resides in it being more thought about.”
The 33-story luxury condominium tower will complete in spring 2017. Residents will have access to a number of amenities, including a fitness center, bike storage, and hotel services, as the New York Times reports.
