111 Charles Street is a new mixed-use building on the corner of Hudson and Charles Streets in the heart of the Greenwich Village. The exterior of this new multifamily apartment building is a playful modern interpretation of curved bay windows and façade rhythms often found in the surrounding Greenwich Village historic district. The curving brick wall is a result of a complex set of curving recesses that increase in depth from the lower to upper floors with the largest setback occurring right before the cantilevered brick cornice. This leaning and curving façade wall is also experienced on the interior, reinforcing the building rhythms throughout the units. Following an initial LPC approval by Morris Adjmi Associates, BKSK Architects advanced the project through completion and provided all interior design services. The interior design is inspired by the curvilinear nature of the façade starting in the lobby with a curved wood paneled wall extending the full length of the space into the elevator lobby. Other details continue this language throughout corridors and apartments. A second-floor indoor amenity space opens directly to a generous landscaped courtyard. A setback duplex penthouse caps the building and includes a large wraparound terrace facing southwest with beautiful views of downtown Manhattan.
