Gordon Matta-Clark’s Loft

Towards Anarchitecture

As the former loft of Gordon Matta-Clark, the top floor of 155 Wooster Street contains a significant historical connection to the pinnacle of the downtown art scene. Inspired by the artist and his work, specifically Anarchitecture and Conical Intersect, our design for the loft renovation and penthouse addition begins with excavation. By carving new connections through the existing roof to unite the spaces above and below, voids are created and then reprogrammed as circulation for both movement and light. These areas contain a vertical greenspace, a stairwell, and a sunken lounge area.
