Pearline Soap Atelier
414 Washington Street, TriBeCa, Manhattan
Creation of two contextual seven-story neo-Romanesque Style residential loft buildings in the TriBeCa North Historic District. 414 Washington Street is 25,000sf and 415 Washington is 55,000sf. In the character of the TriBeCa North Historic District, 414 Washington Street and 415 Washington Street have distinct traditional brick construction in a utilitarian, rational design containing:
Tripartite facades composed of red brick arches clearly expressing the structure with the substantial depth of masonry fully apparent.
Flat openings with a slight camber at the first floor, segmentally-arched openings at the middle floors, and round-arched openings at the top floor.
Raised platforms with glass lenses distinguishing the base and facades, terminating in simple corbelled brick cornices.
Canopies and utilitarian lighting marking the entrances and granite sidewalks.
