Downtown Duplex

New York, New York | Located in a generic 1960’s white brick building near Astor Place, this 2200 sq. ft. apartment was gutted to enhance the spectacular views of Manhattan’s skyline.

The design is formally rigorous, yet cleverly makes use of subtle juxtapositions between a wide variety of materials: wenge wood, venetian plaster, walnut flooring, limestone tiles, panels of waxed steel, and blue marble counters. The design is capped off by the flash of ruby red glass mosaics in the powder room. The apartment conveys a masculine sensibility.

Project Team: John Beckmann and Esther Sperber
Photography: Andrew Garn
