277 5th Avenue
New York, USA
The 55-storey residential building, the highest on New York’s Fifth Avenue, offers retail space, space for entertainment, a gym, a landscaped terrace and 130 luxury apartments. The architectural design of the tower, which is over 200 metres high, features a modern and minimalist aesthetic both inside and out. High ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows bring natural light into the building and afford a stunning view of New York’s skyline. The facade of the high-rise impresses with a vertically striped pattern combining glass and concrete skin panels made of glassfibre reinforced concrete.
