Alfredo De Vido | Architects
70 East 10th Street - New York, New York
Designed in the 1950's, this 425-unit cooperative apartment house was due for restoration. The co-op board requested that the architects redesign the canopy, the entire entrance and garden court, the lobby and ground floor corridors, and the south- and east-facing gardens. In the lobby and corridors, new lighting was installed and new furniture and fabrics were selected. In the gardens, a new paving system was installed, perennial plantings provided, and comfortable benches furnished. The existing concrete canopy at the front entrance was replaced with one that allows natural light to penetrate through a pattern of glass blocks. Exterior lighting was brought up to date in both the front and rear gardens for the residents' enjoyment in the evening hours.
