The Bryant is the first large-scale residential project in New York designed by David Chipperfield Architects. Due for completion in June 2017, it is being developed by New York based real estate investment and development firm HFZ Capital Group. The LuxPad takes a look around…
Located at 16 West 40th Street directly on Bryant Park, The Bryant showcases renowned architect Sir David Chipperfield’s vision for city living and offers soon-to-be residents unparalleled views of the park and the dramatic skyline to the south.
Featuring 57 one-to-four bedroom residences including two triplex penthouses, each residence boasts elegantly framed floor-to-ceiling windows, at least one corner exposure, and sleek sliding doors to blur the division between inside and outside.
“The idea that the structure and façade are the same thing, made out of polished concrete, will give the building a tectonic and physical presence. Through this, the building is reduced down to elements of columns and windows, of solid and void, mass and space.” Said Sir David Chipperfield “I think you can make architecture out of very simple things, it doesn’t have to be complicated. The difference between a good building and a bad building normally resides in it being more thought about.”
The building’s custom made aggregate terrazzo façade transitions effortlessly into carefully considered interiors, creating crisp architectural frames to the multiple windows in each residence, as well as a border for the warm herringbone floors.
Each residence in The Bryant dominates a corner of the tower and is enhanced with bespoke millwork specifically designed by David Chipperfield Architects to conceal storage, appliances and mechanical systems.
