45 East 74th Street - New York




Design and construction of a new four-story and basement townhouse with a set-back fifth floor in the Upper East Side Historic District. The new town house replaced a 19th century townhouse which had been awkwardly renovated in 1957 including the removal of the 19th century stoop and facade.

40 West 18th Street - New York






Design of a new 140,000sf building with 62 units which integrates into the historic fabric of the District.

Although contextual, the design uses distinct details and materials to create a 21st century building. The building runs through the block with towers on West 18th Street and West 17th Street. The project includes the conservation of two historic buildings on West 18th Street.
Landmarks Preservation Commission and the City Planning Commission approval.

The 17th Street facade and an earlier design, "The Ruined Column", is shown below.

92-94 Greene Street - New York






A new contextual residential loft building in SoHo.
92-94 Greene Street was to be a new building that integrated into the historic fabric of SoHo. The building was to run through the block with facades on Greene Street and Mercer Street. The faÁades were designed in pressed enameled steel reflecting the technology of the 20th century in a 19th century context.

The units were designed to have high-ceilinged living rooms facing the street and split level bedrooms with mezzanines in the court between Greene Street and Mercer Street.

Landmarks Preservation Commission approval.

Wow. I think those are very high-quality projects. By the way, I love how that house at 45 East 74th Street - New York stands out.

These new row buildings being built in NYC are a disgrace.You look at the street and don't know which of they area truly old buildings,and which of them are disneyland-styled ones.
I fully support context,but only something that echoes an old building,and not a fake copy of 1800 built in 2013.

this is the new palace complex under construction in the royal state of Terengganu, Malaysia. It was designed according to traditional Terengganese Malay architecture. The Sultanate of Terengganu is one of nine constitutional monarchs still functioning in Malaysia. (we have the most number of monarchs in the world)

Surely it's the same problem with modern international-style highrises that appears like they were built in the '60s too? Or for that matter, all those 1800-buildings that looks like they were built in 1400?

Another one from New York:

Quote:
The Glass Atelier - 401-3 Greenwich Street
TriBeCa, New York

The Glass Atelier has a glass facade made of clear glass bricks laid in a running bond with carved glass columns, capitals and details. The transparent design is in the Romanesque vocabulary of TriBeCa with arched lintels, columns with capitals and plinths, setback windows demonstrating wall depth and a corbelled cornice all executed in glass.

The six story building will contain 2 retail stores and 8 residential lofts with obscure glass partitions.

The Glass Atelier will be in the tradition of buildings found in the TriBeCa West Historic District interpreted as the transparent facade of the last several decades.

Approved by the Landmarks Preservation Commission, May 2009.





Location of the plot: https://maps.google.com/maps?q=401-3...48.24,,0,-21.9


I rhink there is a certain danger than a see-through classical design like that will looks rather kitschy ...

Are You out of your mind, we need to build more stuff like this, instead of the hideous junk we have filled our cities with in recent decades. I can tell you right now that these are no Disneyland styled Mctownhomes. These are the real thing.

An essential purpose of buildings for humans is the appreciation of buildings. For the well-being of the people.
