The Bryant condominium – Manhattan, New York
New York, U.S.A.
New York, U.S.A.
David Chipperfield Architects selected Agglotech terrazzo as the ideal material for the Venetian seminato interior cladding for the columns and some of the flooring of the condominium units. The tower is the first residential building ever erected on Bryant Park, one of New York’s finest and most famous parks.
The goal of the architects was to design a building with a classical elegance in terms of its order and symmetry.
Agglotech was brought in to help find a color similar to the exterior cladding that could be used to clad the interior columns and some of the floors. This challenging task called for extensive research by Agglotech technicians, who eventually determined that SB230 Pellestrina was the solution that met the needs of both the client and the architectural firm.
SB230 Pellestrina is a color with a great deal of character and is a part of Agglotech’s “Seminato Veneziano” line. It features large-chip, white marble aggregate set against a light yellow cement base for a sophisticated Venetian seminato style of terrazzo that creates elegant plays of light that change based on the ambient lighting.
The decision to involve Agglotech in the project came out of the client’s need to rely on a company with extensive experience with both the material and its application techniques. Agglotech is Europe’s largest terrazzo manufacturer, with a product range spanning more than 3,000 colors, making the company the right partner for the architectural firm and this important project.
