The Skyloft Penthouse in Tribeca

By • May 25, 2011 •  Selected Work 

This four bedroom, four and a half bathroom duplex penthouse is situated atop a 1929 Art Deco Tribeca industrial loft building in New York City, USA.

The exterior and lobby of the building were restored and large residential units were created on the upper floors, including this two-story penthouse on the roof.

The nearly 7,500 square foot unit features an all-glass exterior designed by James Carpenter Design Associates and interior architecture and design by Rogers Marvel Architects.

It also has an outdoor terrace of 4,500 square feet on the 14th floor.

Skyloft Penthouse listing’s description:

“The ultimate Manhattan penthouse: Nothing compares to this trophy duplex perched above one of Tribeca’s finest landmark loft buildings. A superb 4,500sf terrace wraps around this contemporary 7,500sf property providing un-paralleled private entertaining space with exceptional views in all directions.

With museum quality, high performance, insulated glass designed by James Carpenter, the envelope of this incredible Penthouse was designed to provide maximum exposure. The finishes throughout the apartment defy description and are of the very highest order. The grand living room boasts soaring 18 foot ceilings and one of three working fireplaces housed within a wall of warm-toned, plain-sawn cherry. An elliptical staircase of steel and glass connects the public spaces and vast terraces to the gracious bedroom suites above.

Hand troweled plaster walls and ceilings feature throughout. White lacquer cabinets, A-grade appliances and bluestone counters are in the eat-in kitchen. Lutron light and shade systems, security and the ultimate luxury, a private garage space, complete the picture of this entirely unique masterpiece.”
