Description by Axel Vervoordt
Set to open in Spring 2014, the penthouse at The Greenwich Hotel will offer guests a soothing retreat high above the bustle of the city in the TriBeCa neighborhood of Manhattan. The top-level penthouse is designed to integrate as much as possible into the nineteenth century industrial neighborhood, using local materials, such as stone and reclaimed wood, providing an authentic feel for its guests and neighbors. Designer Axel Vervoordt and architect Tatsuro Miki utilized the ancient Japanese aesthetic sense of wabi to create a meditative haven within the 6,800 square foot pied-a-terre. Incorporating antique and custom-made fixtures and furnishings, the penthouse includes a large open floor-plan with multi-purpose living spaces, including a separate living room and drawing room, a full sized chef’s kitchen, three fireplaces, two and half bathrooms and three bedrooms, including a master suite. The 4,000 square foot multi-leveled terrace includes lush gardens with wisteriawrapped pergolas, multiple seating and dining areas, a spa pool, a large gas grill, and an outdoor wood-burning fireplace.
Spread out over 2,800 square feet, the large open floor plan of the penthouse has three bedrooms, including a master suite, two and a half bathrooms, a full-sized chef’s kitchen, an oversized living room with dining area, and a drawing room.
