Interiors: Gramercy Park Townhouse

Categories: Architecture + Interiors, Modern Decor + Objects

When i first layed eyes on this living room, it stopped me in my tracks!  There is something so marvelous about this Gramercy Park Townhouse.  Maybe it’s the high ceilings.  Or how about that large round sectional, or that textured art on the wall.  And it could be that fantastic multi colored rug.  All in all, I think it’s the combination of these elements that creates a breathtaking space.  Fractal Construction created a gem in the middle of the city.

“The walls and ceilings of the living and kitchen area are punctuated with the sensuous sculptures and exploding light fixtures of Garcia and Maurer. The bricks-and-mortar rear wall of the two main floors has vanished, replaced by a glass curtain fitted with tiny diodes, invisible by day but glinting at night like a private constellation. The outdoor terrace leading from the living room has a glass floor and overlooks the private gardens below. With every available patch of roof converted into usable space, the house boasts two more terraces as well as a roof deck.  Who could know that behind the brick suit of this Gramercy gem awaits a masterpiece so arresting and unexpected where steel, glass and ceramics combine to create a residence as thrilling as it is comfortable?”
