Interview: Álvaro Siza discusses 611 West 56th Street | Architecture | Dezeen

Portuguese architect Álvaro Siza Viera discusses his first building in the US, a luxury condominium tower in New York City, in this movie made by Dezeen.

The building called 611 West 56th Street is under construction in New York’s West Side. The 35-storey tower comprises two volumes, with a larger block forming the base, and a slender volume rising on top.

Pale limestone slabs will clad the exterior, while large windows will puncture the facade of the luxury tower to offer its residents views of the Hudson River.

The 80 boutique residences will include a mix of one-, two- and three-bedroom homes, penthouses and duplex maisonettes with access to private terraces.

Residents of 611 West 56th Street will also have access to a roof garden, sun deck and several private terraces. Other amenities include a private swimming pool, spa and fitness centre, children’s playroom, screening room and areas for entertaining guests.
