October is here, and with that we are proud to celebrate Archtober as well as the annual Open House New York (OHNY) weekend! Dattner Architects will be providing behind-the-scenes access to two of our award winning projects as well as opening our doors to the public for a behind-the-scenes look into our firm and our works-in-progress.
Saturday, October 13
On Saturday, we will give tours of the Hub – currently Brooklyn’s tallest tower and home to 40,000 square feet of amenities atop a low-rise base of double-height retail spaces. Fostering a social lifestyle, amenities include a 75-foot year-round lap pool, a lushly landscaped sundeck and lawn, indoor and outdoor movie screens, a dog run, kids playroom, party room, and a Sky Lounge and terrace on the 53rd floor. Complementing the character of the neighborhood, the stepped profile of this 600-foot residential tower provides scale and articulation, while affording numerous corner windows throughout the apartments.
Sunday, October 14
Also sign up to tour the Manhattan Districts 1/2/5 Garage and Spring Street Salt Shed. Visitors will be guided through the garage, up to the green roof, and into the Salt Shed, providing a behind-the-scenes glimpse into what it takes to manage the city’s waste stream, and to keep our streets clean. Led by members from DSNY, Dattner Architects, and WXY, the tours will showcase how and why these infrastructure facilities have become two of the City’s newest iconic structures.
Join us in our office on Sunday anytime between the hours of 10:00am to 3:00pm! We will offer Open Access to OHNY Weekenders with an Open Studio tour and discussion, showcasing our commitment to enriching civic space and the urban experience through our process, projects, and social commitment. Select works-in-progress will be on view, and visitors will have an opportunity to gain insights into our firm culture, illustrating our dedication to industry involvement, professional development, philanthropy, and advocacy.
