Living spaces are grand and loft like with up to 12-foot ceilings and oversized floating framed fenestration. The concrete ceilings and original beam sequences of the building have been preserved and resurfaced to accommodate their new domestic environment. The 10 inch-wide white oak floor planks further underscore the emphasis on a modern domestic space readily adaptable to a variety of interior design schemes.
The incoming light is divided through the polished metal surrounding the triple-insulated glass pane for maximum elimination of noise pollution and environmental efficiency. In addition, due to the original depth of the exterior walls, the residences provide deep, generous and long window seats.
The kitchen has always been a home’s center. In these spaces custom walnut Poliform cabinets above and below interspersed with honed Super White quartzite counters are seamlessly united. Integrated into these surfaces are the most efficient and sleek appliances from the top manufacturers to complete the simplest of tasks to the more complex.
Consistency, openness, and visual flow are important unifiers in any environment. Within each residence, living spaces seamlessly transition by means of organic elements, such as the white oak floor planks that lead to the kitchen, beckoning brilliant white quartzite stone surfaces.
The Primary Bathroom's ample room is graciously appointed with state-of-the art fixtures. Dual medicine cabinets and lighting, brilliant gloss-lacquered olive ash and wood drawers, and the silky creams and snowy white hues of the honed Royal Danby marble floor, along with the counter and tub surround, are brought together to unify a very private and personal space. Classic, durable, and enduring, they call to mind the pleasure of being surrounded by these shapes and materials while relaxing in the deep soaking tub manufactured from 100% recycled materials.
The same fine lines of the Master Bathrooms are echoed in these spaces. The Secondary Bathroom comes equipped with wet-style vanity beneath the walnut framed fog-free mirror. White marble from the mountainous Dolomite Italian region covers the floor and tub deck, and the walls are finished in marble mosaic.
The Powder Room’s black steel vanity and black granite counter contrast against the Ceppo di Gre stone wall tile.
on floors 8 through 12 encompass all the architectural elements and lifestyle amenities expected of such spaces. Private terraces and large-scale windows provide expansive views of the City and the Hudson River. Fireplaces from the 9th floor up provide that rare and coveted winter ambience we cherish on cold nights. In keeping with Gottesman Szmelcman’s unique vision and innovative aesthetic, the upper floors don’t reiterate the design of those below—instead, as the architects have elucidated, the “cantilevered dormers link the interiors to the panoramic views, uniting the building and initiating a discourse between the classical base and expressive upper floors.”
