Twisted Building Takes Its Cues from the High Line

Situated across the street from the High Line and Standard Hotel in Manhattan’s Meatpacking District, this new commercial office building, 837 Washington Street, sits atop an original 1938 two‐story Art Modern style industrial depot that has been restored, preserved, and given the cantilevered metal canopy that is signature to the neighborhood.

The new addition is a four‐story twisted, steel exoskeleton with a curtain wall of tall, mullioned windows that calls attention to the angular offset of its site, where disparate Manhattan street grids intersect. The design echoes the postindustrial garden of the High Line, incorporating planted beds that nest within the voids created by the torqued edges of each floor slab.
