50 Lispenard is a seven-story refurbishment project located in the TriBeCa neighborhood of New York City. This project was designed by Michel Abboud for SOMA Architects.
The original building was a garment factory, and is historically protected, thus the extent of the refurbishment was limited to strictly interior improvements, with the exception of a duplex penthouse addition to the roof.
The interiors are rich with wood, steel, and concrete, recalling the original industrial function of the building. The duplex penthouse revolves around a double-height void and glass bridge overlooking two outdoor roof terraces.
