143 Spring Street
Soho / New York

At first glance the site at the corner Spring and Wooster Streets appears to be 2 separate lots. A 3 story Federal building beside a 2 story "historically" styled storefront. The Federal has undergone a multitude of uses and transformations since 1818. In the 70's, it was combined with a garage on Wooster Street expanding it's floor space to 1875 sf.

This project is part restoration, part renovation. After a lengthy approval period, a design was achieved to incorporate the client's, a young footwear retailer, commercial needs with the historic site. Glass and zinc panels are utilized to contrast the new with its historic partner. While being the youngest member of the block, this portion of the building maintains the classic proportions of Wooster Street and the rest of the SoHo Cast Iron District.
