ArchitectLalire March Architects
The L.A. based Franchise, Alo Yoga, opens its Flatiron Location at 164 Fifth Ave Between 21st and 22nd Street. The 1918 Vintage Flatiron District building is over 13,000 square feet and is their New York flagship store. Lalire March Architects recreated Alo’s vision for the Landmark space into a functional and flowing space that conveys the mindset of its patrons. Of course, the location includes a yoga studio and a women’s athletic-wear shop with the brand’s latest offerings. Concrete countertops, vertical glass wall partitions, original concrete floor and new feature stair are enveloped in the building’s beautifully restored façade that is all but lost on this section of Fifth Ave. It also includes a symbiotic relationship of famous chef Matthew Kenney’s new restaurant, Sutra, located on the top floor. The restaurant features a stunning bar and outdoor dining area serving meals to match the lifestyle of those who pay homage to Alo Yoga.
