Context/Program- One full and one partial floor in a five story brick manufacturing building in West SOHO reinvented as creative studios, sales offices, and showrooms for a designer/manufacturer of silk fashions.
As the clothing designers pattern must be placed onto the flat surface in order to be cut, so too does the figural pattern of this showroom unfold. Private spaces for each of the two partners can be recognized at opposite lengths by identical bent wood walls. The two exhibition showrooms, the projects physical center and visual focus are always open through the transparency of their steel and glass walls. Ten private office areas form the perimeter.
