New York, NY (PRWEB) September 20, 2012
The penthouse apartment that tops the historic Tribeca building at 55 Warren Street in New York City, was featured in the recently published “Masterpieces: Roof Architecture + Design,” by Manuela Roth. The lofts at that address, developed by 334 Canal Realty Corp and designed by Sara Arnold of Oaklander, Coogan & Vitto Architects, PC (OCV) with interiors by Leopoldi Rossati and landscape by Kate Fitzgerald, were transformed from two commercial buildings spanning Warren and Murray Streets, into an address offering luxurious, single-floor, loft-style apartments, each with a different layout.
Designed as the building’s “new crown,” the duplex penthouse apartment was an addition to the existing buildings. The penthouse features a rooftop garden and exercise spa, an opening glass wall that seemlessly connects the living area with the rooftop landscape, custom designed interior floating stairs, and advanced home control systems.
With its high ceilings, glass flooring, large windows and skylights, a seamless transition from the indoor living spaces to the open sky is created. Once outside, the north and south-facing terraces provide a calm sanctuary in the sky amid the bustling corridors of downtown Manhattan.
The penthouse of 55 Warren Street can be further explored, along with over 60 other rooftop projects from around the world, in Ms. Roth’s book.
