Apartment Building: 51 East 128th Street, New York City

Metropolis is a thirteen-unit condominium building in Harlem. The units are affordable and compact with two-bedrooms to maximize the demographic flexibility and combat the gentrification of the neighborhood. The smooth stucco exterior is contrasted by a steel-framed window wall and balconies that face south onto East 128th Street. The roof terrace is a common space with solar panels to mitigate energy consumption.
