Issac & Stern Architects and Picksell Studio are working with developer Horizon Group to transform a three-story Classical Revival style building in Chinatown, Manhattan. New renderings of the project offer a first look at the ongoing residential redevelopment located at 61 Rivington Street. The original structure was completed around 1903 and served as a downtown branch of The New York Public Library. The base of the building incorporates horizontally scored masonry that transitions into red brick at the second and third floors.
