2001 - 2003

The Perry Street Condominiums, two residential towers located in Greenwich Village, mark the first construction in Manhattan by Richard Meier. The 16-story towers stand at the north and south corners of Perry and West Street in the West Village and overlook the Hudson River. Their transparent minimal form is a striking addition to the New York City skyline. The orientation of the towers to the west affords panoramic views over the Hudson River, Hudson River Park and beyond to the New Jersey skyline.

In this 1,800 square foot, one bedroom apartment the dark floors of Bobinga wood contrast with the white walls and complement the modern furniture throughout the living room, dining room and bedroom.

Along with the furnishings, the client sought the firm’s counsel for artwork to enhance the space, which includes a wall sculpture by Frank Stella and the bedroom a drawing by Richard Serra.

The resulting space with its clean lines requires little maintenance and affords the client expansive views and a respite from the bustle of New York City.
