GLASSHOUSES - NEW YORK, NY
Located on the 14th and 21st floors of the Chelsea Arts Tower, the Glasshouses provide two independent venues for events with dramatic views of Manhattan and the Hudson River.
The design of the space and the selection of materials accentuate the views and natural lighting and reference the surrounding loft buildings and their concrete construction. Catering kitchens and support areas are tucked into the body of the building; while lighting, sound and video as well as acoustic materials and mechanical systems are fully integrated into the overall architectural design to support a wide spectrum of uses. Terrazzo flooring, venetian plaster, metal coil fabric and aluminum panels reference industrial materials but are treated with sophisticated detailing providing a refined finish.
