Tadao Ando's Expansive Penthouse at 152 Elizabeth Street Is a New York Dream
A casual 5,600 square feet.
The penthouse that sits atop of 152 Elizabeth Street, a residential complex designed by Japanese architect Tadao Ando, is a sight to behold. The 5,603-square-foot duplex, that includes four bedrooms and four bathrooms, provides a seamless coalescence between indoor and outdoor space with multiple outdoor terraces making up 3,240-square-feet of the residence. The penthouse, that rounds out a seven-story residential building situated in Manhattan’s Nolita, offers stunning views from its expansive rooftop terraces that were designed specifically for enjoying the fresh air — equipped with an outdoor kitchen, stone fireplace, soaking tub and outdoor shower.
The inside is furnished in a confluence of stone, steel, oak, and glass engineered by a myriad of Italian, Danish and Japanese brands. The kitchen countertop island, that can be elevated to dining height, is a noteworthy highlight amongst a number of aesthetically pleasing elements.
The building, which was Ando’s first in New York, was described by the Pritzker Prize winner as a “very quiet piece of architecture.” Ando further explains, in a movie made about the project, that he wanted to “create something that only a Japanese person could do.”
