New York Triplex Showcasing an Imposing Double-Height Living Zone
This 2,400 square foot New York triplex located in the Upper East Side of New York City, USA was envisioned by Turett Collaborative Architects as an imposing home meant to accommodate the living needs of a single owner. Featuring a double-height entry foyer and a large living room, the minimalist apartment displays a majestic, almost dramatic appearance softened by a variety of inspiring decorating items.
According to the designers, a unique feature of the condominium is the two-story Vals quartzite stone wall that “runs along the west side of the apartment, with stones that were handpicked by the owner and architect from a remote Swiss quarry. Cantilevered built-in shelves create a table and night stand, while niches in the stone wall are reserved for the client’s various toiletries”. The black oxidized steel staircase acts as the backbone of the apartment, linking the three floors together. A suspended platform above the living room offers a good spot for reading and contemplation. The design of this opulent New York retreat is completed by an idyllic landscaped roof terrace and sun-deck.
