Review of 155 West 18th Street by Carter Horsley

This striking and handsome, 11-story mid-block apartment building at 155 West 18th Street is known as The Flynn and has 30 condominium apartments. 

It was built by IGI-USA in 2016 and designed by ODA New York, which is headed by Eran Chen.

Bottom Line

An eight-story, slate-colored candy box topped by three “sliding” floors in four parts makes for a very impressive and distinct architectural impression with deeply inset, two-story window compartments in the base echoing the melody beneath the top soloists.

Description

According to the architects’ website, “ODA reinterpreted guidelines to excite the façade and interiors at 155 West 18th Street with dormers that increase outdoor space,” adding that “the interior is set back one foot and stone frames were projected to create Juliette balconies that invite each resident to step outside with a firm slab of granite underfoot.” “Interior frames are sheathed in aluminum to bring glossy contrast to the stone façade. Above the base, penthouse dormers slide along the façade line to maximize terrace areas and optimize their distribution between units... Each piece of the front façade is a large slab of granite that was sent to a factory for grove etching to mimic the look of brick… Where the exterior is stoic and solid, stone selections for the courtyard and residential units are softer and more porous.”

Amenities

The building has a roof deck, a gym and a garage.
