Metal Shutter Houses
524 West 19th Street
New York, NY

Quattro Construction Management, LLC. (Quattro) has the privilege of working for Spiritos Properties, LLC on one of the most exciting new condominium projects in New York City. Directly adjacent to Frank Gehry's monument to the Westside Waterfont, world famous architect Shigeru Ban has designed Shutter Houses. Shigeru Ban's Shutter Houses are one part architecture, one part art and one part pure poetry from one of our favorite thoughtful architects.

The nine-unit condominium, located in West Chelsea, blurs the line between indoor and outdoor with a perforated metal shutter system that lets residence open and close their spaces on a whim. The units range from 1,950 to 3,180 square feet. The rolling shutters are inspired by Korean delis and Chelsea Art Galleries that use industrial rolling grates to open and close their store fronts. The Metal Shutter Houses were completed in May 2010.
