STEALTH BUILDING
WORK ARCHITECTURE COMPANY
NEW YORK, NY

Since the 10,000-square-foot, cast-iron building containing the
Stealth House is located in a historic district, the NYC Landmarks
Preservation Commission requires that any rooftop addition be invisible. Tracing the cone of vision from the furthest point from which the
1857 building was visible, three rooftop projections were utilized to
mask the bulk of an addition. The "shadow" cast by these three projections brought about a sizable zone for the creation of a contemporary
sculptural form for the new roof, which is not visible from the street
below and is virtually hiding in plain sight.
The new 3,400-square-foot penthouse sits behind the roofline.
Within the fifth floor of the completely gut-renovated building are
bedrooms, a family room, and a mezzanine/office. Under the new roof,
the double-height sixth floor contains entertaining and dining spaces.
A secluded terrace is sunken behind the pediment with views to the
Woolworth Building; the old elevator bulkhead is repurposed with a
hot tub. The height afforded by the angles formed by the cone of vision
allows for a rear mezzanine, with views toward downtown and the
Freedom Tower. Designed in Italianate style, the original building's
restored façade is split into four bays at each story, and punctuated by
fluted Corinthian columns. Since all the building's Corinthian column
capitals have been lost to history, an artist used computer script to create 3D-printed new versions. These allow the classical floral elements
to appear to grow in a fractal manner, resulting in a new design that
adheres to the old proportions, but is composed to new forms and idiosyncrasies. Behind the charcoal-colored façade, the building contains
retail and three apartments. Within each apartment, a "third space"
between bedrooms and living spaces is created at the top of the volume
that contains storage and bathrooms.
