Completed in minimal time on a shoe-string budget, this project entailed the rehabilitation of a long derilect penthouse office space for a non-profit organization.
We convinced the client—and building owner—to open up the view to the east, allowing more light to flood an otherwise dark interior. While we envisioned a curtain wall of butt seamed glass, wind loads at a 20th floor elevation did not allow for this to be realized within the given constraints.
The entry door to the office was shifted to the north, allowing for a continuous full kitchen with counter and backspash of pigmented cement board as a manageable alternative to stone.
**Subsequent to our involvement on the project, the landlord installed exposed duct runs to even HVAC distribution to the space. We’re wondering who was consulted to determine duct sizing.
