THE FORMULA (PIC TURED): SO IMPRESSED
Features Unique Fabric
Last year, the East Side of Manhattan became home to New York City’s first skybridge in more than 80 years. The 100-foot-long
structure is the defining feature of the east and west towers of the
American Cooper Buildings at 626 First Avenue, which house a combined 760 residences ranging from studios to three-bedroom units.
A modern, thought-out design structure, the skybridge includes key
design elements like SEFAR Architecture’s VISION fabric – a material
that protects the skybridge and its 60,000 square feet of amenities
from the heat and glare of the sun while providing unobstructed views
of the city.
Barely perceptible from the inside, the VISION fabric interlayer
utilizes the three-dimensional effects of the fabric to provide a unique
depth to the glass façade, which is typically seen as a two-dimensional system. From the outside, the fabric is opaque, offering privacy for
“We needed a material that would not affect views from the interior,
but would provide stunning visual contrast between the copper of
the two towers from the exterior,” explains John Ivanoff, associate at
Across the skybridge’s
three levels are a 75-foot-
long indoor lap pool, a
lounge, Copper Tone (the
health club), a juice bar and
a Turkish spa. The space
has direct views of major
New York City landmarks,
including the Empire State
Building. Functionally, SEFAR
VISION fabric interlayers
improve thermal performance
by reducing heat loading
and will save building owners
additional expense on HVAC.
The laminated fabric mesh
will also reduce glare by
mitigating visual light transmission (VLT), eliminating the
need for exterior louvers and
interior shading systems, further reducing the capital cost
to the owner.
