Historic Central Park West Residence


Notes of Interest

This project called for combining two untouched, disparate penthouses (circa 1920) in one of Manhattan’s noted landmark beaux-arts revival buildings to create one cohesive, seamless residence. It had to retain the best of the historic past, while still being appropriate to our time.

Additional goals involved taking full advantage of the four exposures of light, mezzanine, conservatory, rooftop access and views of Manhattan’s Central Park. In addition, the architect provided the philanthropist owner with a residence easily maneuvered and divided into “public” and “private” spaces for work and family.

JURY COMMENTS

The scale, circulation and
appointments are handled in
such a way that the project
does not speak of any
particular time; it is
beguilingly timeless.

Historic elements are re-
detailed with the white panels,
allowing them to
simultaneously exist and
recede, and the dialogue with
the modern elements of dark
wood reinvigorates the
architecture.

The corridors are particularly
inviting and give an ingenious
solution to the plan with flow
and circulation of both the
modern and old.

Masterfully done.
