1014 Fifth Avenue, New York, USA, NY
David Chipperfield Architects were commissioned by the Federal Government to transform a house in New York dating from 1906. The six-story former headquarters of the Goethe Institute in Manhattan has belonged to the FRG since the 1950s. It became a "place for ideas" with the name "1014", the same as the house number on 5th Avenue. Now, through conversion and renovation, careful with the old substance, "An Open House" is emerging as a center for transatlantic encounters. It is expected to complete in late 2025.
The design for the narrow but very deep building includes a new "meeting space" with a winter garden and balcony overlooking the rear courtyard. It extends over two floors and is located between the representative lower floors and the ‘residential component’ with living and working spaces for the user 1014 Inc and stipendiaries on the three upper floors.
