KBK Residence

New York, New York

The KBK residence project involved the combination of two stacked, independent apartments overlooking Central Park on the Upper East Side of New York. The existing structure relied on two-way spanning concrete slabs with draped, welded wire fabric spanning to a concrete encased steel frame.  The main feature of the space is a signature staircase that joins the two levels and penetrates the floor structure in a bay defined by the existing steel frame. In order to keep from loading the center of the existing slab span below, the stair is designed to cantilever out of the upperfloor framing and spiral down to simply touch concrete below.
