The remodeling of a classic Manhattan office building is one of the Cosentino company's most impressive projects. It was possible to carry out a comprehensive intervention on the façade, located on 7 West Street with 51, to achieve a high-impact aesthetic change. The design team responsible for the project, MZA Architects, planned a comprehensive renovation of the façade aimed at achieving a high-impact visual change. At the same time, the project aimed to find a technically feasible solution to the problem of dealing with an old structure in a dubious state of repair. Both the architect and the developer chose three colours that matched the desired design concept. For the exterior façade they opted for Dekton Danae, a beige tone from the Natural Collection reminiscent of the sandy beach. For the lobby floor, they chose Dekton Edora, a shade in the same beige colour range as the façade, which creates a visual continuity between the exterior and interior of the building. Finally, for the interior walls of the building they chose Dekton Borea, a material reminiscent of wenge wood, which adds the stylish touch they were looking for in the renovation. The result creates a balanced and warm look, in tan colours, which contrasts with the coldness of the typical black and white buildings of 1990s Manhattan. Dekton can adapt to any system, and this project was no exception. For this project, Stone Truss Systems used KEIL stainless steel back anchors and placed a carbon mesh bonded to the slabs. They also used TS-179 aluminium horizontal wall rails, which were fixed to the substructure with anchor clips. In short, a masterpiece of construction that made it possible to install Dekton slabs firmly, without compromising the beauty of the original design.

The new façade of this building in the Diamond District, just a stone’s throw from Rockefeller Center, gives it an incredible look and makes it the envy of all its neighbours.
