41 seventh avenue south

Gertler & Wente Architects designed this new 6-story mixed-use building located in Manhattan’s West Village. The ground and cellar floors are designated for commercial use. The 2nd-6th stories are comprised of one residential unit per floor. Seventh Avenue cuts the lot’s front lot line at a sharp angle, setting the tone of design for the 25’ x 90’ site. The design approach is to maximum the floor area by providing balconies and roof decks. Conventional materials balance with unconventional applications reflected in the different massing elements.
