Architecture

Transformed with an extraordinary architectural vision, 12 East 13th Street is uniquely suited for contemporary loft-like residences. Expansive floor plates provide grandly proportioned but flexible living spaces. Four bays of oversized windows across the unrivaled 67-foot-wide street front provide striking light and air. Completely updated with a new structural envelope and state-of-the-art mechanical systems, the building has been reclad in a burnished orange-red Roman brick.  At the top, a crown of curved luminous glass rises from behind the cubic form of the original structure, turning the building into a work of art.
