Summer House


 

SUMMER HOUSESummer-House 1 

Summer house is a 500,000 sq. ft. mixed-use tower with 18 residential floors seated on top of  a five story parking garage in downtown Stamford. This project introduced many challenges, the site location being the biggest one.

In many aspects, it is almost like building in NYC- we have exiting buildings at all sides, and in addition, a portion of our building cantilever over an existing restaurant.

The building was designed by others and was not built due to high cost.

Wexler associates redesigned the structural system to a modified staggered truss system that resulted in 40% savings to the owner.
