slumped glass façade for a VIP showroom

seele was commissioned for another project on 5th Avenue in New York and can thus count a ninth project on the famous street among its references. For the Tiffany & Co. Flagship Store, a new VIP showroom is being built on floors 8 through 11, for which various façade constructions are planned. The design intends a slumped glass façade for the upper section on the north and west sides, with elements measuring up to 8.80 x 2.45m that extend over the 10th and 11th floor.

  • Above and below, the elements are equipped with completely closed spandrel areas to create a visually uniform surface in the ceiling areas. On the east side, where the façade is not directly facing the street, an aluminium cladding is previewed, while on the south side the building is directly connected to the Trump Tower.

    On the 8th and 9th floor, there is a balcony with a stick system façade of aluminium profiles and glass panes up to 3.50 x 2.13m in size. Furthermore, various door systems are integrated into the façade. Production is scheduled to start in summer 2020 and the demanding installation in the centre of Manhattan is scheduled for spring 2021.
