73RD STREET TOWNHOUSE

A soaring three story penthouse meticulously crafted of wood, resin, glass, and steel supported off a central wall of hand selected Vals quartzite.

The attention to detail on this triplex penthouse is indicative of a successful collaboration with a client interested in unique solutions without compromise.

The two story quartzite wall that forms the organizing spine of the apartment was hand picked by Wayne and the client from its alpine quarry in Vals, Switzerland. A seamless walk-in soaking tub is surrounded by glass walls
that can be made alternately opaque for privacy or perfectly clear at the flip of a switch.

A soaring triple-height stair features laser-cut steel supports and translucent resin treads, which cantilever in places like stiff diving boards. At higher levels, it becomes a bridge casting warm, orange-tinted shadows throughout the space.

These three key elements combine to create the most unique of homes custom designed and crafted to meet our client’s exact wishes.
