Trespa Project Profile – Chelsea Arts Tower

Trespa Project Profile- is a series of public programs at the Trespa Design Centre, which encourages candid presentations by architects to discuss their experience using Trespa on completed projects.

Chelsea Arts Tower is the first condominium commercial gallery building, located on West 25th Street in the heart of the Chelsea Art Gallery District, in Manhattan. The 20-story tower is 110,000 sq-ft, made of concrete and glass and out-fitted with Trespa®, Meteon®.

Architect, Alan Garry, first conceived the building as an exposed concrete structure with aluminum curtain wall. As time moved ahead, it became clear that exposed architectural grade concrete above the first floor would not be achievable. Trespa was a product that had interested him since the mid 1990’s and for this project, it appeared to be the perfect solution. “The material was artsy, thin and could be simply applied to the concrete, was, at the time, no more expensive than brick, and perhaps most importantly, forgiving”.

Mr. Garry will candidly discuss in an open forum how Trespa met his design goals, the construction phase, weathering, durability, Trespa’s performance during and after Hurricane Sandy, and your questions.
