studio gang’s ‘solar carve’ office tower is moving ahead, with new renderings detailing the manhattan development’s interiors and roof terrace, which both overlook the hudson river. plans for the scheme were first floated in 2012, and now, with the project finally receiving approval, construction work is set to begin in new york’s meatpacking district ahead of an anticipated 2019 opening.

‘solar carve’ has been shaped by studio gang in response to sun access and other site-specific conditions. the building’s geometric and faceted form ensures that the adjacent high line receives daylight, a mutually beneficial gesture that affords the office tower views of the elevated park. according to the new york post, tenant amenities will include a 10,000 square foot planted rooftop as well as an 8,000 square foot terrace at high line height. apart from the 7th floor, all office levels will have private terraces.

‘the design uses the angles of the sun to carve back parts of the building, specifically to the garden,’ jeanne gang told designboom last year. ‘in new york you have the stepped back skyscraper, so already buildings are stepping back to bring light to the street, but the high line is an interior block condition. so we argued to get a variance so we could carve it back on the inside of the block.’
