Chelsea Townhouse, Selldorf Architects

The Frick Collection

Selldorf Architects is designing a major new expansion and enhancement of the Frick Collection. Honoring the architectural legacy and unique character of the Frick, the plan provides unprecedented access to the original 1914 home of Henry Clay Frick, preserves the intimate visitor experience and beloved galleries for which the Frick is known, and restores the 70th Street Garden.

Luma Arles

Luma Arles is a new contemporary art center that brings together artists, researchers, and creators from every field to collaborate on multi-disciplinary works and exhibitions.

Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego

Selldorf Architects was tasked with creating new architecture for the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego, La Jolla that would give greater meaning to the whole, better connect the Museum to its spectacular coastal setting, provide significantly more gallery space, and create a more welcoming and clear entry.

21 East 12th Street

This new 118,500 sf mixed-use project is located on the corner of University Place and East 12th Street in Greenwich Village. The primary urban opportunities of the site are to connect to the thriving pedestrian activity and contribute to the public’s experience of the streetscape.

The Mwabwindo School

The Mwabwindo School will serve primary students in southern Zambia, located in a rural area where travel distance to school is one of the biggest impediments to quality education.

10 Bond Street

This new 34,000 sf residential building makes a strong contribution to New York’s NoHo neighborhood, a landmarked district characterized by elegant loft structures built during the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

SUNSET PARK MATERIAL RECOVERY FACILITY

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.

DAVID ZWIRNER 20TH STREET

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.

Westchester County House

Located on a 13-acre protected, wooded site, this private residence is an experience of art and nature. The client’s extensive collection of contemporary art is on view throughout the house and specifically accommodated within three dedicated galleries.
