DDG Partners’ elongated brickwork tower (UES)

Our friends at DDG Partners have undertaken a bold and daring architectural experiment in this grey brick residential tower, which plays intelligently with the typologies of the Art Deco architectural style, to be assembled in Carnegie Hill, Upper East Side, Manhattan. In addition to eye-catching vaulted balconies with brass frames, the building will be made of nearly 600,000 uniquely textured, elongated Kolumba bricks. The building will stand 50-storeys and contain 48 residences, of which a key feature will be vaulted ceilings rising as high as 14 feet. The interiors will also reflect the predominating pre-war aesthetic, and the bathrooms will abound in silver travertine.
