Situated on the rooftop of one of Manhattan’s most storied landmarked buildings, this modern glass penthouse is the epitome of juxtaposition.
The newly constructed glass box sits amongst the grand landmarked building’s exposed infrastructure for water, heat and ventilation.
The awesome parapet wall that screens the glass house from the west and south creates a feeling of confinement and privacy among the surrounding city buildings with view out to the north and east. Each space of the penthouse experiences a different moment. All rooms have access to the outdoor patio, allowing the indoor and outdoor spaces to become one.
