The rounded design of the Heatherwick studio

The British designer Thomas Heatherwick has unveiled the project concerning a pair of residential towers straddling the High Line park in New York. The main feature of the project is the design of the barrel-shaped windows.

Heatherwick Studio designed the two towers to be built on either side of the High Line, at 515 West 18th Street, in the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan. The just published renderings show windows made of glass panels that tilt at the top, bottom and sides to create the curved shape that seems to protrude between the masonry walls. Its two towers will be connected under the raised park and will host a total of 180 residences, from one to four bedrooms.

So far little information has been released on the project, although one of the towers will be 21 stories tall and will have a stepped form. Reports state that the other will increase by 10 floors.
