The Clare in New York: architecture committed to light lifestyle
The Upper East Side in Manhattan has a new neighbour: The Clare. A residential building with 30 luxury apartments spread out over 19 floors. Designed by Manuel Glas Architects, where light is a conductive thread between the inhabitants, the public and the private space.
Elegance, exclusivity and flair; The Clare building simulates being a skeleton open to New York through its large window walls with panoramic views open in all directions, some of them measuring up to five and a half metres.
Manuel Glas Architects has printed its vision of urban architecture in every detail: light is the central axis and the bridge between private life and public space, with large spaces with large windows which, at the same time, contribute to the efficient management of energy due to the structure which filters the outdoor light and the ventilated facade on the walls.
Its strategic location between Central Park and the East River, next to the Queensboro Bridge, makes the views from the building even more magnificent: Central Park, the Roosevelt Island Streetcar and the 59th Street Bridge.
Spacious design apartments with character, elegance and comfort from 180m2 to 920m2. Paradise in the city which does not sleep. The orientation on the corner between 2nd avenue and 61st has been enhanced with vertical fins on its facade which cast shadows, creating a unique relationship with the surrounding public space for the building.
