Álvaro Siza’s first building in US fully unveiled – Hell’s Kitchen Tower
LED has successfully reviewed the ultra-luxury condo glazed facade for Pritzker Prize winner Álvaro Siza's first-ever building in New York City, 611 West 56th Street, a unique 37-floor tall residential tower, developed by Sumaida + Khurana and Leny. This is also Siza's first-ever building in the US.
"Siza is world-renowned for the sculptural characteristics and purity of his buildings. The intricately constructed 80-residence monolithic tower will be wrapped in four sides of Perla Bianca limestone and reflect the subtle and refined detailing that Siza is known for."
Façade Contractor Aluprof developed, produced, and installed a bespoke unitized window wall system that seamlessly merges into the limestone skin with carefully placed joint lines. LED helped coordinate and PE-stamp all metal-glass envelope elements including all storefront facade types throughout.
