Located on a prime Soho block, this dramatic penthouse captivates hearts and minds with its elegant interiors and wealth of outdoor space.
Architect Edward Siegel and designer Ernest de la Torre teamed up to turn a traditional loft into this inspiring two bedroom, two full and two half bathroom home. Throughout the duplex, the smart, graceful design unites art deco touches with East Asian-inspired midcentury modernism to create a singular, refined style that earned the residence a well-deserved feature in Architectural Digest.
Penthouse B's walnut-paneled foyer greets visitors and offers a hidden entrance to a powder room. Shimmering dark stained white oak floors flow from the foyer into the great room--an expansive space with a row of walnut-covered columns accentuating its soaring 11-foot-2 -inch ceiling. The great room's highlights include a spectacular wood-burning fireplace wall clad in white gold quartzite and a wet-bar outfitted with a stainless steel countertop, Dornbracht sink fittings, and glass shelving. Along the east wall, Moduline windows and French doors open onto a 528-square-foot lower terrace which provides a picture-perfect view of One World Trade.
The kitchen is a chef's dream come true with a Viking range, vented Viking hood, Northland refrigerator, two Bosch dishwashers, walnut cabinets, stainless steel countertops and Hansgrohe sink fittings.
