100 Norfolk

Imagen Subliminal

One hundred reasons, one hundred stories.


One hundred reasons to be there: the headline advertising the opening of the new 100 Norfolk St building by ODA celebrates the uniqueness of its features, counting them one by one. From the awesome New York City location (just 70 feets away from Delancey Street, in the Lower East Side of Manhattan), which makes the 100 Norfolk close to the well-known Bowery Hotel, the New Museum, the music clubs and, even, Williamsburg, to the garden lounges, the appliances and, of course, the design, the website dedicated to the new ODA's building in New York tells the story of this new architectural addition to the city. Now, a video by Imagen Subliminal helps transform reasons into stories.

Growing diagonally, incrementing area every two floors, the 100 Norfolk is a building of a playful appearance, with unexpected and surprising structures, made of different volumes, which add a little twist to what would be a rather typical residential building model.
The unexpected structure is, in fact, at the center of the Imagen Subliminal's video, where the storyline includes a red box that has to be delivered. This trick is used to show the neighbourhood and its interior spaces: the box, held in the hand of an unknown man, guides us inside of 100 Norfolk St, crossing different stories, both in the sense of floors and of people living in the building, which accommodates 38 homes. The striking glass façade, dazzling the eye, creates reflections and makes the building looks precious like a chandelier; what's more, the interior shots reveal a beautiful view over the once vibrant and unpredictable and now gentrified Lower East Side.

Supported by a upbeat, playful music and using techniques such as stop-motion and fast-forwarded shots, "100 Norfolk" video by Imagen Subliminal represents an easy but intelligent way to show a building in all its features and, that's more, to make it even more desirable to its possible clients.
