Located in the Meatpacking District of Manhattan, The Porter House consists of the renovation and conversion of a six story warehouse to condominium use and includes a new, cantilevered six story structure. The faÃ§ade is comprised of a custom fabricated metal panel system and internally mounted light boxes, which blur the massing of the building as day turns to night. Marine grade fluorescent fixtures are installed within each galvanized steel box and hinged opalene acrylic panels are used for exterior access. The box is met along its sides on the face of the building by zinc channels to define the lit panel and cover the galvanized edges of the box. The box is installed in such a way as to shed water down and out and over the zinc panels below to prevent water from entering the faÃ§ade.
