The Glass-Heavy NYC Townhouse Designed for Art Collectors

Guys, we know how you struggle to find the perfect apartment to display your collection of abstracts in the NYC area. Well, worry no longer as Turret Architects place a home designed for the avid collector right in the thick of the Chelsea gallery quarter, envisioned as a “blank canvas” for you not so blank canvases. 6500 square foot, three floors make full use of a narrow space, as you’d expect, natural light a priority the home uses glass walls wherever possible, flooding the double height rooms. If that wasn’t enough, the penthouse, pulled away from the front and rear facades, offers a sizeable landscaped terrace and panoramic views of the midtown skyline, the Highline and the Hudson River.
