95 Greene St
This simple and elegant office building has characteristics of both neoclassical and postmodern architecture, although because of its minimalistic form and decoration the question of style is not dominant.
The elevated ground floor and an open terrace covered with sunshades on the Green St make a clear distinction between public and semi-private spaces also offering a porch-like extension to two small businesses.
Cornice caps of the pedestal floor and the neoclassical Doric dentil moulding of the eaves, as well as the rusticated pilasters of the pedestal and walls of the top floor suggest that the designer had in mind palazzo style façade structuring. Different fenestration to the portions of the building and orchestrated change of their rhythm are making the same associations.
