Explore a Light-Up Model of Shigeru Ban’s Cast Iron House - Thursday, May 29, 2014

The Shigeru Ban-designed Tribeca lofts and penthouses for sale at Franklin Street’s Cast Iron House are finally getting treated like the works of art they are. A 3D model of the redesigned 1882 building, created by Richard Tenguerian, is now on display at the Cast Iron House sales gallery. The model shows some of the building’s most notable details, including the 4,000 restored pieces of the original cast iron façade that face the street. From the double-height ceilings in each of the 11 duplex residences to the two penthouses, which appear to float above the rest of the building, the unique replica captures the unusual elegance and meticulous attention to detail that make this Tribeca building such a triumph.
