Residential tower

195 Bowery | New York

The 5 story 1900’s gaslight factory building  was remodeled into 17-story residential condominium with the art gallery at the first floor and public space at the second.

 

Lateral force resisting system consist of steel moment frames in one direction and diagonal braced frames in the transverse  direction.

 

The aspect ratio of the building is 1:7. Adverse effects were considered in the building calculations to reduce natural frequency  vibrations influence on residents.

 

Existing foundations were enlarged and reinforced to withstand  new building loads.
