Boutique Hotel in Tribeca , New York

Hudson

Client: The Jerafi Family
Location: Hudson
Area: 3,000 sq.m.
Year: 2008

 

The building is situated on an irregular plot of 500 square meters on the corner of Hudson and Canal Streets, New York, NY.
500 square meters is a typical plot for a villa anywhere in the country or a small living quarters in Tel-Aviv. But in New-York, the city zoning program enables construction of a small tower of 12 floors.
The plot was bought by an Israeli family that reached the city in the 1970's during the renowned "leaving' wave, for a pittance, and currently is located on one of the hottest corners in the city and is worth millions.
The project entered the office a little before the last global economic crisis. Being the owner of the building, the family's idea was that, they will not need financing and therefore could progress even without the help of the banks, who shunned any real estate initiative at the time.
Due to the economic situation, we offered the client three alternatives: Cubes - an ecologic alternative based on a double envelope, one by the rooms, differently situated in each floor and canceling the need for the traditional corridor; and the other, an exterior glass enclosure. Between the two envelopes there is a micro-climate that can heat the building in the winter and cool it down in summer and thus conserve a lot of energy and saves money for the hotel management.

 

Patios

the zoning code in New York enables several programs in the same volume. The multi-programmatic alternative enables a building that is hence ironically and space organization wise can be a hotel as well as an apartment building in the same time. Since of the economic crisis the project might get stuck, so it is worthwhile to think for the long term and offer programmatic flexibility that will be able to adapt itself to a market in crisis.
