Pritzker-Prize winning Japanese Architect Tadao Ando’s first residential development in New York City and outside Asia, 152 Elizabeth Street, is approaching completion with the unveiling of its new two-bedroom, 2.5-bath model residence. Nestled in the heart of Nolita, the luxury building was developed by Sumaida + Khurana in partnership with Nahla Capital and was conceived to be an inner sanctuary in downtown Manhattan.
Designed and curated by FAIA designer and architect Michael Gabellini, who also collaborated with Tadao Ando and served as the interior designer for all of the luxury condominium’s interiors, Residence 3E exemplifies the environmental elements of light, air, sound and water, all of which define the condominium’s identity. Priced at $6.1 million, the striking home provides a look inside the highly anticipated condominium. The model home was styled and furnished by Gabellini Sheppard Associates, accessories sourced through DDC with select pieces from Atelier Courbet, Nicolas Cogrel Flowers floral arrangements and features artwork by Yossi Milo Gallery. Leonard Steinberg and Debra LaChance of Compass are the exclusive sales and marketing agents for the building.
In Residence 3E light is viewed as a material substance with tangible qualities that serve to activate spaces and elements throughout the residence. Six-foot tall operable windows capture and diffuse the abundance of natural light throughout the home, while 10-foot tall floating white ceilings and wall planes, featuring Gabellini Sheppard Associates’ signature ‘reveals’, create a sense of grandeur and continuous space.
The flooring is comprised of stunning wide plank Danish oak, from Dinesen, which is also featured in select wall panels and used to create the wonderfully thick, full-height doors to the master bedroom. To extend the trend of continuous space, doors have been designed to seamlessly pocket into corridor walls and all grills and vents have been carefully integrated and concealed to deliver purified air while remaining complementary to the harmonious spatial theme. Neutral colors and earthy textures enhance the sanctuary atmosphere of the home, which was styled and furnished by Gabellini Sheppard Associates, accessories sourced through DDC with select pieces from Atelier Courbet, Nicolas Cogrel Flowers floral arrangements and features artwork by Yossi Milo Gallery.
Standout items include a hanging Light Ring chandelier and expansive Nakashima dining table in the dining area; Ibiza Forte coffee table and YANG sofa with Elliott table in the living area; YANG Wide king bed and striking wooden LING side tables in the master bedroom; and sculptural QBIC marble side tables and an ANDERSEN queen bed in the guest room.
