Anger over low-income housing in a New Orleans suburb has stoked long-simmering class and racial tensions.

STYLE / T MAGAZINE

Among the myriad projects in which the architect Annabelle Selldorf has recently been engaged — a new gallery for Barbara Gladstone, a municipal recycling plant in Brooklyn, Abercrombie & Fitch’s Tokyo flagship — are two residential buildings in Chelsea. “They are both nice buildings with nice floor plans,” Selldorf says somewhat modestly of 520 West Chelsea and 200 11th Avenue, a project that has gotten a lot of attention in particular for its drive-in elevator and private parking garages on every floor. “I almost considered moving into one of them myself.” But for Selldorf, the few universals in architectural design — space, proportion, light — are always tempered by context and use. And in her own case that meant that at the end of day, a nice floor plan wasn’t enough to lure her away from her current neighborhood, with its proximity to the Union Square Greenmarket and, no less significant, to her office. Ironically, it’s living 11 blocks from work that allows Selldorf, who puts in long hours and travels constantly, to be able to spend any time at home at all.
