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

This gut renovation of a duplex near Astor Place in Manhattan looks north toward the Empire State Building (left). The spire of Grace Church and other buildings near Union Square sit in the foreground. They all culminate in a dramatic view with plenty of ups and downs.
