The Metal Shutter Houses, designed by the internationally renowned Japanese firm Shigeru Ban Architects, are located on the south side of West 19th Street, between 10th and 11th Avenues in West Chelsea’s art gallery district, steps away from the High Line, the Hudson River, Chelsea Piers, and the Hudson River Park. The block offers a bold display of the new New York: the Frank Gehry-designed IAC Headquarters are next door and Jean Nouvel’s 100 11th is across the street. Low-profile warehouse buildings throughout the neighborhood allow for long city views, including the Empire State building, from each floor of the Metal Shutter Houses.Save this picture!© Michael MoranRecommended ProductsLouvers / ShuttersBruagShading Screens – Perforated Facade PanelsWoodBlumer LehmannFree Form Structures for Wood ProjectsMetallicsSculptformClick-on Battens in Ivanhoe ApartmentsLouvers / ShuttersRabel Aluminium SystemsElectric Folding Shading System – Rabel 14000This marks the first new construction condominium residences in the United States by Ban. Known for his “poetic” architectural style, Ban has tailored what could be characterized as contextual invention to this unique 11 story structure. Such highly sensitive ingenuity has been seen in some of his previous house designs, such as the Curtain Wall House (Tokyo, Japan), the Paper House (Yamanashi, Japan), and more recently, the Furniture House 5 (Sagaponac, New York). While Ban’s work is continually so inventive that one cannot generalize his “look,” the Metal Shutter Houses’ variable façade demonstrates Ban’s fascination with use of unusual materials (or use of common materials in new contexts) and mobility of parts, often inspired by the simplicity of traditional Japanese architecture as well as the modern lines of the International school. Save this picture!© Michael MoranThe Metal Shutter Houses is a dynamic building. The façade’s motorized perforated metal shutters serve as light-modulating privacy screen at the outer edge of each residence’s terrace adjacent to the double-height living rooms. This subtle “removable skin” echoes the neighboring gallery after-hours shutters, subtly contextualizing the building within its site. The building can literally become a uniform minimal cube, or it can open completely (as well as virtually unlimited permutations between). South of the loggia, twenty foot tall, upwardly pivoting open completely, thus blurring the boundary between the inside and outside – the double height living room and loggia become one. Similarly, a series of interior sliding glass doors create an open “universal floor” in each of the duplex houses – one vast and uninterrupted expanse which transitions seamlessly from inside to outside, or partition the space into private areas. Save this picture!PlanThe building stands approximately 120’ tall and consists of eleven stories, featuring eight duplex houses ranging from 1,950 sqf to 4,644 sqf, an art gallery and a 24-hour doorman on at the ground floor lobby. Although most of the units were sold prior to breaking ground, the recently finished penthouse has been brought to market for $12.95 million.Project gallerySee allShow lessStretched Pavilion / CentralaArticlesnonLin/Lin Pavilion / Marc FornesArticlesProject locationAddress:524 W 19th St, New York, NY 10011, USALocation to be used only as a reference.
