In 1933-34 William Lescaze, the revered modernist architect, designed and built his own house in Manhattan. Claimed to be New York's first modernist house, it stands out from its row of Brownstones due to its striking design. White concrete, glass bricks, an absence of ornamentation and its use of strong geometric forms make this house unique.
Lescaze approach to architecture can be seen in every facet of the building. From the external design to the internal layout, his focus on function and practical living are evident.
Chisel & Mouse have produced a stunning sculpture of the front facade, paying a fitting homage to one of New York's most desirable residences.

The Flatiron was designed by Daniel Burnham, a founder of the 'Chicago School' style of architecture. Completed in 1902 the building was built using a unique steel skeleton which became the prototype for many skyscrapers that followed.
The building was not initially greeted with public acclaim, but soon became a symbol of New York and is considered the nation's first true skyscraper. Its distinctive clothes 'iron' shape gives the building its name. Built at the intersection of Broadway and Fifth Avenue, the 'Architectural Record' suggested the building "resembled a ship sailing up the Avenue."
The Flatiron has become one of New York's must see tourist attractions - a true city icon. Chisel & Mouse have modelled the building in its entirety, enabling you to view the sculpture from each of its unique angles.
