Scalar has vast experience working on occupied buildings and working around their users. Our project is a renovation of an existing structure. Much of the emphasis of the project is a new envelope and in particular, the 29th street facade. Located on a narrow Manhattan street, the design configures a series of elements that search an oblique geometry longitudinal with the street as they manage the existing structure. The new envelop provides high performance, substantial energy savings, elective permeability, and maintenance. The new oblique geometry allow for a series of visual relations between the inside and outside.
