FÖRENA

Morris Adjmi Architects as Architects

FÖRENA is an island of calm at the convergence of Downtown Manhattan’s most vibrant neighborhoods. Located at the northeast corner of West 14th Street and Sixth Avenue, the new condominium building anchors the intersection with a robust structure imbued with subtle complexity and quality materials.

While FÖRENA's massing may appear to be smooth and somewhat conservative at the ground plane, the masonry volume serves as a base for cascading terraces with chamfered metal frames that culminate in a modern crown. This top volume is comprised of aluminum composite material, which reappears as window surrounds within the bottom volume’s façade. Apart from the stepped setbacks, the building embodies a relatively symmetrical form to cultivate a solid and soothing presence amidst an otherwise unpredictable streetscape.

Within, the 12-story building yields 50 condos featuring a mix of one-, two-, and three-bedroom units—several of which benefit from private outdoor space created by the stepped edges along the upper stories. For the unit interiors, inspiration was gathered from the Scandinavian design ethos to create warm and comforting spaces with a restrained palette. Oversized floor-to-ceiling windows and fluid layouts result in spacious, light-filled homes that can accommodate and accentuate any lifestyle. Förena’s penthouse units feature even larger proportions, higher ceilings, and private terraces off the primary bedrooms.

Interior materials were carefully considered to achieve a serene, refined ambiance. Hardwood flooring can be found throughout all units. Kitchens feature Calacatta marble, Italian cabinetry that has been hand-finished by artisans outside of Venice, and Miele appliances.
