The 208 West 96th Street Residences is located in New York, United States. In Manhattan alone, there are many buildings that incorporate such screens to varying degrees and with varying success. The latest of these is 208 West 96th Street Residences; a new ten storey luxury apartment building on Manhattan’s Upper West Side.
Designed by Arctangent in collaboration with David Hu Architect, 208 West 96th Street Residences houses nine full-floor apartments intended to evoke the feel of a downtown loft. Each three bedroom, three bath home has an open plan and warm finishes throughout, floor to ceiling windows and a Juliet balcony. But the building’s defining feature is a playful metal façade that both conceals and reveals.
