Chelsea Townhouse, Selldorf Architects


The Sunset Park Material Recovery Facility is a processing center for New York City’s curbside glass, metal, and plastic recyclables which is being undertaken by Sims Municipal Recycling and the City of New York.


For David Zwirner’s second location in Chelsea, Selldorf Architects designed a 30,000 sf building that is the first LEED certified commercial gallery in the U.S. The neighborhood’s industrial-aesthetic is the inspiration for the exposed concrete façade.
