100 Norfolk Street is a screened minimalist tower of refined proportion and state of the art technical function. A stainless steel mesh screen cloaks the building in a single skin, which obscures the concrete, glass, steel and the functional program of the building. This skin repels direct solar gain, but provides a thermal transition zone to make the building more energy efficient depending on the season. In warm weather air is drawn up the surface of the building, creating a breeze of natural ventilation, in winter warm air is cloaked between the building mass and its skin.Located in the Lower Eastside the towers ten full floor residential apartments look over the Williamsburg Bridge to the East and the rest of Manhattan to the West. The three story commercial base is designed to house a private gym. An open air courtyard brings natural light through all floors of the tower base and into the residential entrance lobby.
