Project: Nelson Glass Apartments

Location: Princeton, N.J.

Architect: Joshua Zinder Architecture + Design

Client: Nelson Glass & Aluminum

 

A new multifamily project will add three floors to a local glass company that’s been in business for more than 60 years. The rental apartment addition is designed with sensitivity to the neighborhood’s character, the family-owned business, and the environment.

To reduce the massing and allow light and air to reach the street level, each floor is stepped back from the one below, creating terraces for the residents of the six new apartments to enjoy. The proposed cladding matches the existing building’s brick while adding glass rails and aluminum trim — a nod to the history of the lot and the family that owns it.
