The Building

Built in 1931 by Ralph Walker, One Wall Street is an Art Deco masterpiece. A towering tribute to success, this elegant building towers over Wall Street and Broadway, right at the very center of Downtown Manhattan.

Originally built to be the home of the Irving Trust, One Wall Street was constructed without compromise. This same meticulous attention to detail coupled with the opulence of rich materiality continues today as it is transformed into a gracious residential building.

The Architect

Ralph Walker (1889–1973), named Architect of the Century by The New York Times

Ralph Walker pioneered the use of setbacks, creating inventive,
Light-filled asymmetrical towers with elegant ornamentation and
pure material choices.

Many consider One Wall Street the high point of both Walker’s career
and Art Deco architecture.

A Manhattan Landmark

One Wall Street makes up ‘a triumvirate of great Art Deco contemporaries’ on New York’s skyline, alongside The Empire State Building and Chrysler Building (New York Times).

This elegant building with its folding curtains of limestone cladding evokes “more subtle appreciation,” as highlighted by the Chairwoman of the Landmarks Preservation Commission in 2001. "Once you fall in love with it, you're in love forever."

Meière re-collaborated with many 20th-century architects and created some of the most ambitious, well-regarded Art Deco murals in America. Walker admired her greatly.

The artist is shown at the Pühl & Wagner factory, Berlin, where her rich, warm design was fabricated before being shipped to New York (being installed by Ravenna Mosaics). The pattern of gold tiles echo the views onto Trinity Church.
