17 PITT STREET, NEW YORK, NY
3,500 square foot steel-frame, cast-concrete and channel glass building.
Ground up design of a single-story, industrial use building on a corner portion of a late 1960’s “super block” on the Lower East Side of New York City. The new building is designed to maximize energy efficiency and boasts an extensive green roof and three garage doors that fold up into projecting awnings when in the open position. The sleek façade cleverly conceals the building’s main purpose: to house refuse.
