The recently completed expansion for an international technology company‘s New York City offices was the focus of a photo shoot by Liam Frederick. With the support of a large cast and crew, the photo shoot spanned 3 days, 2 sunsets, 2089 photos (educated estimate), 12 beers, and 3 pizzas. Some behind the scenes photos from a long weekend of shooting are included here, with the final photos expected in the coming weeks.
All the photos from the 3 days have also been condensed to an 84 second time lapse featured below:
In addition to Liam, special thanks go to Lee Altman, Travis Bunt, Julio Alberto Cedano, Annie Coombs, Thomas Heltzel, Jenny Joe, James Quick, Amy Shell, and Margaret Zyro, who added life to the photos and photo shoot alike.
Pliskin Architecture’s latest collaboration with K&Co was recently covered on Curbed, a New York based real estate and architecture blog. The project, a temporary installation in an old pool facility on Roosevelt Island in New York City, was completed in time for Memorial Day weekend and the start of the pool season.
This Curbed feature covers one piece of a larger phased project. The client, Roosevelt Island Associates, together with of K&Co and Pliskin Architecture, is planning a larger remodel of the outdoor pool area at Manhattan Park, an 8.5 acre waterfront rental community, as well as new designs for the lobbies, hallways, and rental units. In the interim, the design team proposed a temporary, whimsical design installation called “pop-up pool party” that would last for the 2015 pool season. The pop-up pool club will feature new loungers, hammocks, beach-style lifeguard chairs, and other deck furniture, as well as other upgrades – all with an iconic, pop-art feel. Most notably, the redesigned space will feature a pool deck mural by noted street artist and “yarn bomber” HOTTEA. The design team consisted of Krista Ninivaggi, Aaron Levy, Carly Berger, Micah McKelvey, and Barak Pliskin.
