Snøhetta designs residential building in Manhattan

Nov 27, 2017

Snøhetta is leading the design of the new residences at 50 West 66th Street in Manhattan’s Upper West Side. Embracing features found in the neighborhood, the design reveals its base, body, and crown in contemporary terms. The striking geometry expands New York City’s rich legacy of tower design while embodying an identity formed by human scale at the street. Situated at the heart of the neighborhood’s cultural core, steps from Lincoln Center to the west and Central Park to the east,
the building will join the neighborhood, sensitively responding to its context and referencing the area’s architectural character with a natural palette of refined materials.
