Since opening in 1978, FXFOWLE has grown to become one of New York’s most prolific architecture firms, transforming the skyline with new and updated additions like the slick and sloping 35XV in Flatiron, showstoppers like 4 and 11 Times Square in Midtown, and their conversion of a massive Village medical complex into a luxurious celeb-filled residence called The Greenwich Lane. While FXFOWLE’s designs are most often lauded for their originality and contextual sensitivity, what’s often overlooked is that their work is also firmly rooted in sustainable design. Ahead FXFOWLE senior partner Dan Kaplan talks about how he and his colleagues have for over three decades used green building principles and sustainable design as common practice in New York City, as well as how he feels about the role of “signature style” in architecture today.
East Chelsea’s stunning new landmark, the 35XV, is almost complete!
We recently stopped by the site to survey the work that’s been done over the past few months, and by the looks of things, 35 West 15th Street is just waiting for an outer-skin for its podium. Given the rapid progress that’s been made so far, we think it’s safe to say that we’ll be seeing the transformation very soon.
