459 W 18th Street. Project: Della Valle + Bernkeimer, 2009. A residential project located between two of the most vibrant neighborhoods, the Meatpacking District and Chelsea, on Manhattan's West Side. The stringent and rigorous exterior of the building, consisting of composite panels and white and clear glass, interacts and conceals the measured calmness of the interior. The massive expanse of the glass lends a cinematic quality, framing the views as a continually changing picture. Photography: Della Valle + Bernheimer, Evan Joseph, Frank Oudeman, BLiP Studio. Assignment: Rasomuro and Rasovetro doors.
