How drab the city streets can be with the monotone colored buildings and not much blue sky to be seen. However, after two and a half years of planning, design and construction, the Big Apple can now see blue, thanks to architect Bernard Tschumi’s Blue residential tower located on the Lower East Side. Designed with an original envelope pattern sets the structure apart from surrounding buildings, thus adding a bit of an eclectic attitude to a normally dreary skyline. With a mosaic façade that reflects the surrounding city, while blending into the sky above, are evidence to Tschumi’s attention to detail in his designing of the building. Each of the residential interiors is simple, yet elegant in design, with bamboo or palm flooring, stone counters and tile, stainless steel appliances and cabinets.
