38 Greene Street features a 2-story glass and steel penthouse vertical extension to an existing 5-story commercial condominium in SoHo, Manhattan. The proposed architectural design is “based in the language of the historic context - specifically the repetition and proportion of architectural elements, the shadows produced by layers on the façade, and divided glazing patterns” according to Workshop/APD. This rooftop addition is set back from the edge to provide adequate outdoor space and allow co-working and communal gatherings.

Additional Information
The work consisted of full structural engineering design and schematic building enclosure design for the 
project, with a focus on the parametric façade design including form-finding, structural analysis of the glass and backing structures, detailing, constructability consulting, roof design, and the waterproofing design.
