Building Description

Once you look at the images of the building at 109 Norfolk Street, it is clear why its designers, nARCHITECTS, decided to name it The Switch Building. With its jutting windows that alternate from one side to the other the building clearly resembles a bunch of light switches. Located on Manhattan's Lower East Side, The Switch Building is very quaint as it has just five apartments -- four floor-through condominiums and one duplex penthouse.   The large windows at the front of The Switch Building are an interpretive take on classic bay windows. One the inside of the apartments, they open up to provide a comfortable seating area. Each unit in The Switch Building has luxurious hardwood floors as well as top-of-the-line appliances and fixtures. As should be obvious from the uber-modern feel of the building's exterior, the interiors of the apartments in The Switch Building are very modern as well.   With a burgeoning art scene emerging in the Lower East Side, the architects of The Switch Building, at 109 Norfolk Street, decided to take advantage of this opportunity. The building boasts an art gallery on its lower two levels. Pets are welcomed along with their owners at The Switch Building. Given its design, The Switch Building is one of the more unique, and aptly named, buildings in Manhattan.

The Lower East Side’s boundaries — east from the Bowery to the East River Park and bounded by Houston street to the north — seem to be the only non-changing aspect of this booming neighborhood. While decades ago, the area was populated mostly with working-class families and up-and-coming...
