The 30 E.22nd Street Facade Renovation located in the residential neighborhood of Gramercy in the center of Manhattan in New York City, seeks to explore the articulation of a traditional town house facade by combining the old style of the wrought iron work found on entry canopies, fences and facade grills around the city with a more contemporary approach to this elements as facade enhancers with a modern motif. Allowing the use of light, shadow and perforation patterns to cast an artistic approach on what remains to be a simple brick punched open facade. A composition of sculptural metal frames serving as shading elements and air conditioning covering grills will adorn the facade by emphasizing the textures of the brick with lighting concealed within the metal frames. The frames being carefully placed to enhance the vertical quality of the building, maintain a desirable proportion with the adjoining street scape. Concrete planters at the street edge of the building seek to enhance the entry experience by the means of a more organic presence on the sidewalk, the planters flooded with lighting and evergreen vegetation start to create a sense of ownership over the public realm creating a bi lateral relationship between a re salvaged wood bench sitting on a concrete planter and another wood bench on the opposite side of the sidewalk serving as a protection fence around a Ginkgo tree that enhances the facade.
