Set in the midst of bustling Downtown Manhattan, 152 Elizabeth Street is Tadao Ando’s first residential development in NYC and outside Asia. Spanning three levels, the residence boasts an astonishing amount of private outdoor space, as well as a custom Pietra Cardosa stone, glass and satin spiral staircase by Gabellini Sheppard Associates, who served as interior designer of the entire building.
Situated in the heart of Nolita, the boutique seven-story building celebrates Ando’s hallmarks such as poured-in-place concrete, burnished metal, voluminous glass and a living green wall.
Considered a concrete and glass jewel box, the striking condominium features just seven custom homes, each of which is focused on creating a sense of openness throughout the home as well as a fluidity between the indoors and the outdoors.
The extraordinary 5,603 square feet residence resides as an inner sanctuary for those looking to enjoy one the city’s most traversed neighborhoods, yet retains feelings of serenity and tranquillity when home. Perhaps most impressive, though, is the penthouse’s 3,240-square-feet of outdoor space, which is spread throughout three floors.
The first floor of the home includes a private terrace outfitted with one of Tadao Ando’s signature water walls, while the second includes a balcony off of the master suite and also designed by Ando.
The third outdoor space, located on 152 Elizabeth’s rooftop, leaves nothing to be desired and includes landscaped planters, a Tadao Ando-designed granite stone fireplace and outdoor kitchen.
152 Elizabeth is developed by Sumaida + Khurana, which recently secured financing for its next development, 611 West 56th Street, designed by Pritzker Prize-winning Portuguese architect Álvaro Siza. Compass is the exclusive sales and marketing firm for the development. Source and images Courtesy of M18 Public Relations.
