PROJECTS
55 Third Avenue, New York, NY
About:
A mixed use, 4000 square foot new construction addition to the rear and side of an existing high-rise in Manhattan required deft use of exterior materials to interpret the architect's modern design. Materials were chosen to harmonize with the exterior facade of the original structure, but also adding a new aesthetic that would fit the building's new luxury renovation.

Challenges:
Architect's bold, modern design called for extensive areas of the facade to have smooth, uninterrupted surfaces across multiple stores and as much as width's of 80'.

Solutions:
Universalputz Historic Mix Stucco has physical properties that allow for new construction over frame construction without use of extensive control/expansion joints.
