30 Warren, a boutique luxury condominium in Tribeca, has released a sneak peek of its precast concrete facade, an ambitious design crafted by Francois Lininger of French firm Post-Office Architects. Francois's modern twist on the cast iron and stone aesthetic of Tribeca, and the work that went into creating this look with over 70 different molds from corrugated cardboard, have come to life in brand-new, never-before-seen photos that feature iconic Tribeca buildings in the backdrop.
“The texture of the precast panels at 30 Warren, achieved by casting concrete over strips of corrugated cardboard laid at a 45° angle, creates an ever-changing facade. The panels' color changes depending on the light and the position of the observer, going from light grey to merely black in the blink of an eye, registering the smallest inflection of daylight. The panels look at times crafty and mineral, and at times soft and light like corduroy." Says Francois Leininger.
30 Warren is comprised of 23 meticulously designed residences ranging from one- to three-bedrooms. Homes have been designed with open floorplans; soaring ceilings that start at 9’6”; and bespoke cabinet details hand finished and fabricated locally in the Hudson Valley. Select homes will feature private outdoor space, while oversized picture windows and multiple exposures in each residence ensure an abundance of natural light. Amenities include a fitness center, children’s playroom, bicycle storage, laundry room, and a full-time attended lobby.
