Driven by Design with Cadillac September 2014

The second stop on the Driven By Design architectural tour, curated by Architectural Digest: New York City. Guests were treated to an exclusive tour of the city’s most interesting buildings and private residences. Next generation 2015 Escalades chauffeured guests in style as they made four stops: the World Trade Center Complex, Cast Iron House, NeueHouse, and Chelsea Townhouse. At each stop a renowned expert gave a behind-the-scenes look and background on the design of each project.

The World Trade Center Complex is a vision of downtown New York that features modern, safe, and sustainable space. Guest speakers: David Childs, Skidmore, Owings & Merrill: WTC & 7 TWC and Michael Arad, Handel Architects LLP, National September 11 Memorial.

NeueHouse is a radically new kind of office: a series of spaces, experiences, and amenities geared toward ambitious innovators. Guest speaker: David Rockwell, Rockwell Group.

Cast Iron House represents one of New York’s most sumptuous examples of 19th-century cast iron architecture. In adapting this building for modern living, architect Shigeru Ban faced a significant challenge: to remake a landmark in his singular style, while preserving its historic detailing.

Chelsea Townhouse is a stunning single-family, five-story Chelsea townhouse that features modern glass enclosure, flanked on either side by two decks. Guest speaker: Contractor to the Stars, Stephen Fanuka, Fanuka, Inc. Interior design by Bryan Eure. Architecture by William Suk.
