Workshop/APD has done something truly unique by seamlessly blending two separate buildings from different architectural eras into one at HFZ Capital Group’s 88&90 Lexington in Manhattan’s NoMad neighborhood.

The two buildings had separate identities in their previous lives, one being a rental building and the other office space, before being reimagined by Workshop/APD.

The firm saw the two as a blank canvas and as an opportunity to bridge old with new, restoring the pre-war façade of 88 Lex while giving 90 Lex, the modern post-war half, a “face lift” in addition to creating classic interiors with a modern twist to resonate with the architecture of both.

Workshop maintained the unique pre-war and post-war identifies of 88&90 Lexington while uniting them with a shared expansive lobby and over 8,000 square feet of underground amenity space.

The firm completely gutted the basements of both buildings to make way for the collection of amenities, even adding in an L-shaped indoor pool in what was previously vacant space.
