In the heart of the trendy Flatiron district, an existing landmarked 19th century neoclassical building is crowned by a new innovative brass and glass tower. The overall design approach of these two structures fuses the craftsmanship of a bygone era with sophisticated modern detailing and a subtle use of luxurious materials.
The striking lobby preserves lavish elements of the original structure, including the moldings, restored and newly highlighted in bronze. Dramatic, intricate bronze fretwork screens frame the space; recalling the original iron work and are offset by sumptuous marble, shimmering metallic columns and bespoke walnut paneling. Overhead, a dazzling chandelier of subtly hued glassine orbs by Groves and Co. presides over the tableau.
The complete renovation of this pre-war pied-à-terre overlooking Central Park created a graceful setting of serenity and sophistication — the finished space is a glamorous, refined aerie in the sky.
To open the living space to the glorious views, a cramped second bedroom was removed. The space was also completely reorganized to provide a spacious walk-in-closet, a pantry, and much needed storage space. The new kitchen features white lacquer cabinetry and mosaic marble tile, while the baths maintain the restrained detailing in travertine.
This tailored renovation of an exclusive Park Avenue residence combines two separate, formerly disjointed units into one capacious duplex. A modern, glamorous dwelling, the expansive floor plan allows for formal entertaining, as well as a quiet living–loft-like feel; one that exudes luxury, craftsmanship and a quality suitable to the address.
The generous living room incorporates a landscaped wrap around terrace with striking views atop Park Avenue and Central Park. Adjacent, the dining room highlights an expansive custom rosewood and patina bronze table, and segues into a luxuriously comfortable media lounge. The vast kitchen, a must for the culinary skillful client, is laid with an expansive white marble countertop and Boffi cabinetry. An intimate breakfast nook, wet bar, and functional butler’s pantry completes the picture.
