Central Park North Condominiums + Church
New York, NY
SAS is leading the design development of a new condominium building and church at the northern edge of Central Park, with both condominium and church programs intensively tailored to meet the needs of their respective constituents.
The project is purposely divided into two distinct volumes: the church base and the condominium tower, each having distinct requirements. The tower provides sweeping views over Central Park with a concise and generous layout for each apartment, while the base offers a dignified and generous relationship to the streetscape and neighborhood while preserving privacy for the church’s space of worship. A sober geometry and materiality were selected to suggest a quiet dignity for both the luxury of the residences and the sacred nature of the church, while also accommodating the economic demands of development and building in New York City.
