The architectural project with an industrial tone and rugged materic approach by the architect Tadao Ando for the residential complex at 152 Elizabeth Street in Manhattan, New York, combines concrete, steel and glass with ethereal natural elements like light, shade and water.
The interior design by Michael Gabellini of the architecture firm Gabellini Sheppard features spaces made to measure for each of the seven residences, making them habitats of the highest quality with a timeless style.
Crossing the threshold, one immediately senses the tension between light and shadow thanks to full-height windows that frame the space, and small lighting fixtures that add a special atmosphere. Nature is an omnipresent reference: the water wall in the vestibule of the swimming pools brings dynamism and a sense of meditation.
Light and water, primary ingredients for Tadao Ando, are layered by Michael Gabellini with air and sound to create individual, independent spaces for living.
The kitchens and bathrooms feature Cea faucets in brushed stainless steel.
