The careful modulation of the façade, the angled shape of the tower and the glass covering help to reflect the changing sky and seem to make the building disappear.

The building 35XV, designed by FXCollaborative Architects, is located in Chelsea, downtown Manhattan. It is adapted to the harsh conditions of the city, where spaces to construct new buildings are so scarce that they have started to build in mid‐air. The project began when Alchemy Properties purchased the right to build structures over Xavier High School.

The tower is anchored on a six‐floor basement coated in granite which extends the stairway and the materiality of the context to the street level. A cantilever of 5 metres over the base and 11 metres over the rear patio rises up with a large 19 storey glass residential structure.

This area includes 55 luxury homes offering one to four bedrooms, with a community area including a gymnasium, a play area for children and a community terrace on the seventh floor. The careful modulation of the façade, the angled shape of the tower and the glass covering help to reflect the changing sky and seem to make the building disappear.

The greatest importance has been given to maximise natural light and this has been achieved thanks to the WICONA WICTEC EL SG modular façade, creating large glazed areas.
