570 Washington Blvd

Hidden between the apartment blocks just above the Holland Tunnel, close to the Jersey City docks, this modest business block blends into the surroundings as its visually integral part.The office edifice rises next to the garage annex which also hosts the open ground floor, connecting  the complex to the city.

Clad in light beige ceramic tiles and semi reflective blue tinted glazing, buildings only visually expressive part is the large modern vertical oriel emphasizing the main entrance. This postmodern element is repeated on the flanks of the building as a flat allegory to walled windows. The first two floors of the main annex have the same visual treatment as the garage of the complex, clearly showing the similar function of the spaces.
