Tadao Ando Showcases Japanese Architecture in NYC Residential Complex
Pritzker Prize winner and international architecture titan Tadao Ando has officially debuted the rooftop terrace penthouse atop his premier project in NYC, 152 Elizabeth Street. Named after its own address, the masterpiece is located in Nolita, Manhattan, and was fully designed by the japanese architect:
Rocking 4 bedrooms, 4 and a half bathrooms and categorically large windows, across 2 floors connected by a bodacious indoor spiral staircase, this magnanimous piece of luxury architecture is heavily inspired by modern Japanese aesthetics – focusing on depicting a luxurious yet minimalist environment, that promotes tranquility and uniqueness above all.
Ando being renowned as he is for his work with steel and concrete, the penthouse brands plenty more ultra luxurious fine points, ranging from its white-walled interior laid on Danish oak floors, to its total 3 distinct outdoor areas. These include a private terrace on its first floor, decorated with its own customized waterwall, and above, a balcony adjacent to the master bedroom, and a larger third terrace that might as well be called another residence entirely, with its own set of kitchen, lounge, fireplace, shower and bath, all of them outdoors.
In case you were planning to start saving up, let us stop you right there – the penthouse was sold before ever even actually reaching the market, and for not a penny less than US$35 million. But hey, it’s still worth looking at from the outside!
