We began to work with the 56 Leonard team during the building's ascent to prominence over Tribeca. Starting with photography of its off-site showroom, then continuing to document the tower's construction process, now in its final stages, our collection of images showcases one of the most unique additions to the venerable downtime skyline.
56 Leonard Showroom
Before construction of the tower got under way, 56 Leonard's showroom was located down the street from its future site. Illuminated by an ingenious daylight simulating system, the space was defined by a diffused, subdued palate. To complement the jagged exterior, the designers focused on curvature for interior spaces. Curves are carried through to the smallest elements, like the rounded window wall profiles, complete with integrated heating and drapery details.
