Completion Date: June 1995

Location: Upper East Side - Manhattan

This luxurious penthouse was previously 3 apartments, which were combined to create the owner's city residence.

With three bedroom suites, 5 bathrooms, a 600 square foot living/dining room, a full cook's kitchen, guest suite and more, this 3,000 square foot apartment is luxury living at its best.

The layout provides the flexibility, which is essential to the way the owners live. It has plenty of family areas and recreation space. The main areas can easily be divided and opened up as needed, to fit the owner's dual lifestyle - family oriented, and yet socially active.

Existing square columns were rounded off to conceal electric connections, and to enhance the flow of circulation in the living area.

The lighting is designed to provide both a backdrop for the owner's art collection and to enhance the architectural detailing.

This penthouse has 4 sides of light and air, and has tripled its value since it was completed in 1995.
