V33

Archi-Tectonics as Architects

TriBeCa’s Vestry Street has a vast variety of facade configurations and building heights. Over the years, the district has evolved from textile trade to artists’ warehouses, and now, residences. Archi-Tectonics’ V33, a high-end residential condominium, unifies the historically varying building-fronts via a pixelated facade.

 

The design team generated numerous pixelation patterns by overlaying Vestry Street’s varying facade levels. The resulting pattern is comprised of translucent stone and glass, which creates variable facade conditions throughout the course of the day. The facade’s translucent stone glows to the inside during the day, and to the street at night.

 

As one of Archi-Tectonics‘ many Smart Skins, the V33 building’s facade meets historically contextual demands while introducing technological, environmental and material innovations. The facade, engineered by Archiglaze, includes translucent stone, double glazing windows, and stone-aluminum panels. These irradiating materials give a performative purpose to the strategically conforming building-front.

 

To the south, the eight-story building optimizes daylight exposure with double height spaces, very deep balconies (up to 12 feet), and sun rooms which work to refract shade into spaces that require less light.Archi-Tectonics sought to make each of the seven units different, and as a resulteach residence has an exclusive experience, whether in terms of layout or exposure. Every unit shares the benefits of both facades: facing north, natural light filters through the stone, and facing south, sunrooms absorb light from double height terraces. 

 

The exclusiveupper-most unit has a private rooftop and swimming pool.Due to its extreme customization, theV33 building is considered a set of stackedurban villas rather than lofts. The units are a generous size (between 3500 and 5000 sf), have large outdoor spaces (terraces and gardens), and, sometimesmultiple floors, in addition to the building’s private parking with a car elevator.
