456W19 is a 55,000sf, eleven-story condominium building located at the center of the Chelsea art gallery district and alongside the High Line park. The building consists of 22 duplex apartments with 20ft high ceilings. Architect and developer Cary Tamarkin designed this building. Robert Garneau was hired as an independent sustainability consultant on this important project. Robert was involved from the design through to the construction phase.
With Robert’s extensive expertise in sustainable architecture and his creative input in product specifications the building qualified as a US Green Building Coucil LEED Certified project.
The building design recalls the neighborhood’s iconic industrial architecture and artist lofts. Interiors feature dramatic expanses of steel windows and a refined material palette that infuses warmth into the open floor plans.
Windows spanning the full height of each home drenches each space in sunlight. Open kitchens, seamlessly transition to living rooms to create cohesive entertaining spaces. Bathrooms are fitted with teak cabinetry, glass-mosaic tile walls and Calacatta marble floors. Sustainably harvested, 10" wide plank white oak flooring and high performance glass windows are just two of the many environmentally friendly details on this project.
