Seen & Heard: 100 Franklin sheds its skin
Tribeca Citizen was on hand when the scaffolding came down off the first completed sections of the red brick facade at 100 Franklin, giving the paper a first look at the contextual, historic brickwork design by DDG. The architects used bricks by Danish brickworks company Petersen Tegl in classic patterns, including leaving gaps between some of the bricks, in order to give the angular buildings at 100 Franklin a sense of continuity with the historic surroundings. The project itself consists of a pair of triangular buildings set against one another on a narrow lot in a way that maximizes floor space and views for the 10 full-floor Tribeca condos within, including a pair of duplex penthouses with private rooftop decks.
