OMA completes black Manhattan apartments with “prismatic corner”

Triangular windows fold up the corner of this OMA-designed housing block, which marks the architecture firm’s first ground-up structure in New York City.

OMA completed its milestone project, 121 East 22nd Street, on an L-shaped property in Manhattan that spans Lexington Avenue, 23rd Street and 22nd Street.

The residential project is designed to be as unique as possible, while paying homage to neighbouring pre-war structures and adhering to the city’s zoning laws and height limits.
