Elegant and Exclusive First Project by Architect Tadao Ando in New York City
By Magaly • Dec 27, 2017
The famous and cosmopolitan city of New York is in luck: Tadao Ando, the Japanese architect, who has been praised for his mastery and elegance, has finally designed something in the Big Apple. His buildings have been erected in Tokyo, Milan, Shanghai and even Butwal, Nepal, but never in the cosmopolitan city of New York!
New versions of Tadao Ando’s first project in this city, a luxury residential building known as 152 Elizabeth Street, showing the interiors of its unique multi-story penthouse for the first time, have been revealed. It promises to become one of the most elegant condominium buildings the city has ever seen. Simple, modest, and beautifully proportioned, this is typical of the work of Tadao Ando.
With a sale price of $ 35 million, the penthouse unit covers an area of 5,603 square feet of interior space and 3,240 square feet of outdoor space on three levels, which includes 4 bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms. The interiors, designed by Gabellini Sheppard Associates, have high-end finishes. The spiral staircase, for instance, was built with Pietra Cardosa stone, glass, and satin steel. Other materials include oak floors, Danish planks, Dinesen widths, eucalyptus wood cabinets, as well as various types of stone and the material most associated with Ando: concrete.
