New York, USA
Gym & cinema
With Via 57 West, Bjarke Ingels and his firm BIG created a magnificent architectural statement on the Hudson River’s Manhattan shore, built upon a philosophy of equal light and balconies for all apartments, and a shared community courtyard.
The building, which won the International Highrise Award in 2016, harnesses both New York’s vibrancy and the tranquillity of nature, becoming an oasis within the never-sleeping city. With 20 percent of its residences as affordable housing, Via 57 West represents the democracy, sustainability and love of nature celebrated in Danish apartment buildings.
‘Clean’, raw and untreated materials have been used throughout, and our products’ AISI 316 steel is also present across the structure’s stunning facade, making our products the ideal finishing touches for this future-facing building.
