The Most Exciting New Buildings in NYC Are Being Built to Show Off This Material
A few blocks away, at 30 Warren Street, a 23-unit condo designed by Post-Office Architectes, a similar reverence for the material is taking form. François Leininger, a partner at the firm, interestingly describes the structure as a glass building sheathed in a corrugated, concrete skin. “We wanted the skin or the cladding to be like a veil, meaning that it would look almost like a single element going across the whole
façade,” he says. This “veil,” which is interrupted by large scale windows, is paramount to creating privacy
for the residences on a busy corner of TriBeCa.
