Hudson St. Residence (2009)
Tribeca, New York

The Hudson St. Residence is a 13,000 sf private residence and guest accommodations for a prominent New York family. The loft comprises the top three levels of the building and adds a completely redesigned roof garden and penthouse.

The design unites the three formerly disconnected levels into an open, fluid and cohesive whole. This was accomplished by creating voids and interior garden courts within the mass of the building, and through the introduction of a continuous cast aluminum surface that visually and materially weaves together the diverse living spaces of the residence.

The experience of the loft balances a clear sense of order and calm with a sense of discovery as volumes unfold, intersect, and overlap in unexpected ways. Space is organized as distinct landscapes that offer multiple ways of engaging the city and a variety of uses from large-scale gatherings to moments of individual reflection.

The Hudson St. Residence was completed in the fall of 2009 under the management of Bryan Young at Allied Works Architecture; Brad Cloepfil (AWA) was the principal in charge of the project. Landscapes are by Paula Hayes, interior design by Jarlath Mellett, and photography by Dean Kaufman.
