Construction is nearing completion for this freight entrance and loading dock renovation project!
Responding to a shift in user patterns in this converted Beaux Arts manufacturing building following the extension of the #7 subway line to nearby Hudson Yards, we repurposed the back of house entry into a second pedestrian lobby, separating the still-active loading dock area from the newly adopted tenant access with a new glass and steel partition.
To minimize future maintenance and to honor the manufacturing roots of the loft building, the raw industrial character of the space was embraced; historic steel panels, masonry walls, and the original plaster ceilings were stripped of decades of paint and left to weather gracefully over time. Contrasting against these distressed finishes are crisp new light fixtures and bright industrial yellow wayfinding graphics.
