Architects regatta 2019! #regatta #sailing #architectsregatta #bksk
Remembering those lost 18 years ago on 9/11. In 2006, BKSK designed the 9/11 Tribute Visitor Center, which was built as an interim destination for visitors, family and community, while construction was underway at the @911memorial. The center allowed visitors to reflect on the events of September 11th through the integration of images, artifacts and personal narratives. The Center aimed to celebrate the vibrancy and resiliency of the community, rather than memorialize what was lost. Though we still grieve, today we also honor the first responders and spirit of New Yorkers to persevere through tragedy.
The New York Architects Regatta Challenge is this Thursday and BKSK is currently #3 on the fundraising leaderboard! ⁣
⁣
Help us surpass last year's total of $17,950 - we are asking for your support in raising funds for not only the marine related event charities but also one charity close to BKSK, the EB Research Partnership.⁣
⁣
The EB Research Partnership is the largest nonprofit dedicated to funding research aimed at treating and ultimately curing #EpidermolysisBullosa (EB), a group of devastating and life-threatening genetic skin disorders.⁣⁣

Rest in Peace Toni Morrison, the first African-American woman to win the Nobel Prize in Literature, in 1993. Morrison was the author of 11 novels as well as children’s books and essay collections. She had a profound impact on so many people - specifically through illuminating black identity and the black experience in America. At the @center4fiction, her legacy boldly lives on - greeting visitors everyday from the stairs. .

What a huge improvement to the neighborhood. It has been exciting to be a part of the restoration and renewal of several buildings surrounding this public square. We recently celebrated the completion of the Hermes store and the opening of Pastis on Gansevoort Row, and look forward to the completion of the block with several more of our projects.

What a view 👀! Today we joined our partners to celebrate the completed Gansevoort Plaza as well as other vital infrastructure upgrades in the neighborhood. The completed project features 28,454 square feet of new pedestrian space as well as new street lighting, traffic signals, plantings, and more. In addition to the new plazas and expanded sidewalks, the teams worked to preserve the historic elements of the area, including the cobblestones and manhole covers. It is a space to be enjoyed by all for years to come.

Our #adaptivereuse #preservation #retail project #GansevoortRow in the news! @wwd @nypost and @therealdeal covered new additions to the block - three new luxury retailers: @brunellocucinelli @frame and @belstaff join @pastisnyc and @hermes on this historic block. We have touched so many buildings in #mepa and love playing this role in preserving the character of the neighborhood while attracting world-class tenants!
The dome’s structure at @44unionsquare is complete and the glass is being installed!⁣

From @newyorkyimby:⁣

The curved dome atop 44 Union Square, the former headquarters of Tammany Hall, is structurally completed and the geometric glass panels that enclose the lattice frame are beginning to be installed. The renovation is designed by BKSK Architects and developed by Edifice Real Estate Partners. CNY Group is in charge of construction on the historic, 90-year-old landmarked structure, which is being expanded to 70,348 square feet. Two new floors will be housed beneath the dome and receive abundant natural daylight. Reading International (RDI), who purchased the building eighteen years ago, helped to advance the project thanks a $57.5 million construction loan they secured from Bank of Ozarks and Fisher Brothers.⁣

During a #sitevisit to @queensbotanicalgarden, where we are currently working on the Garden’s Education Building, our team enjoyed a wonderful concert under the canopy at the #leedplatinum Visitor and Administration Center, one of our favorite projects completed in 2007.

As seen in the New York Times, 200 E. 21st Street, a 20-story, 67-unit condo in #Gramercy, will have solar arrays that help heat potable water; a rainwater-collection system that irrigates several landscaped “green roof” areas; windows that reduce heat transfer; and an agreement to source any additional electrical needs from an off-site wind farm.

Last week, @kimberlybutlerphoto and her team interviewed #BKSK about our project #onevandam for @azaint and their social media/website. We will share as soon as it’s public. What a great experiencing it was, to talk about the facade design and construction and the intricate project management and sourcing elements required to create such a beauty. #bksk #bkskprojects #media #video #social #noho #westvillage #arch #facade #architecture #archinect #archdaily #6sqft #dwell #curbed
Amazing new photos on the @44unionsquare feed of glass panel installation at #TammanyHall in #unionsquarenyc.

At our new project, 1 Great Jones Alley: progress on the exterior living wall in the building entry. As the plants are grown off site, the @tournesol_siteworks VGM Green Wall modules must be slowly rotated over time, 45 degrees at once, to allow the plants to acclimatize to vertical growing. Once they are tilted up to 90 degrees they will be transported to the vertical green wall at the entrance.⁣⁣

Swipe for a rendering of the soon-to-be completed project. BKSK collaborated with @HMwhite_SA and Plant Connection, Inc on the landscape design.
In case you missed last week’s post during the mysterious Facebook / Instagram outage... @field_condition photographed the corten steel fins going up on the north facade facing Great Jones St at #22bond in #nohonyc
#RP @field_condition ・・・
Featured today on FieldCondition.com: corten steel fins are going up at BKSK Architects’ 22 BOND residential condos in NoHo.
Highlights from our team’s site visit @queensbotanicalgarden to kick off a new educational building that we are designing in collaboration with the Garden’s staff. We’re thrilled to work on another project that will further the Garden’s mission to create an urban oasis where people, plants and cultures are celebrated.
@littlerudythefrenchie set the bar high with multiple pride celebrations under his collar - ready for #worldpride this weekend! #loveislove🌈 #pride #lovewins #proudpuppy #officedog #officedogsofinstagram
A glimpse of the second-floor roof terrace at #1greatjonesalley, which features naturally oxidizing Corten steel visible from the alley building entrance. In contrast to the more traditional facade on Broadway, the building entrance on Great Jones Alley is a special unexpected moment that reveals the building in layers. ⁣⁣
