BUBBLE DOME PROJECT LOCATION

public park built on a historic freight rail line elevated above the streets on Manhattan’s West Side. It runs from Gansevoort Street in the Meatpacking District to West 34th Street, between 10th and 12th Avenues.

PROJECT IDEA

the idea of this project is to bring natural light to the most of the building. trying to blend the building with the highline without affecting the highline popularity


AKRON,OHIO, I put 17 units above the reused building. That created a court yard for each level with a green area. For the street level, I kept the bar and the lock 3 view and I added an entrance for the residental area. The structure is concrete and I kept the original facade that is brick. I extruded to the second floor to make the concrete and the brick blend together.The second floor is office , and the third floor is balcony, bathroom and bedroom. For the residentcial entrance , I designed a facade that works like a mask so I didn’t have to tear the old building down.

LEVEL 2

Each unit has a balcony that provides a view either of the street or the court yard. Natural light comes in to each unit.The unit is 3 floors, first floor is living room, kitchen and dining room.

The second floor is office , and the third floor is balcony, bathroom and bedroom. For the residentcial entrance , I designed a facade that works like a mask so I didn’t have to tear the old building down.
