During the height of the Roman empire, arched windows were used for their stability as buildings began growing taller and grander. Today, they shape the character of the building and can be seen on some of the most luxurious residential buildings throughout the country.

200 East 83rd Street
The new Upper East Side residential tower by Robert A.M. Stern Architects, 200 East 83rd boasts interiors by Rottet Studio. Drawing inspiration from the grand structures along Park, Fifth and Madison Avenues and the historic clubs and cultural institutions that have shaped the Upper East Side, Stern and his partners created a unique design language for the Modern Classical building. One resulting component is arched windows, found within 200 East 83rd’s monumental indoor/outdoor amenities spaces and select Penthouse residences.
RAMSA’s unique decision to lift the seventy-foot pool, health club and entertainment spaces to the middle of the tower is boldly expressed on the building’s façade and complemented by Rottet Studio’s gracious amenity interiors. Each featuring a vaulted ceiling, double-height loggia with floor-to-ceiling arched windows and French doors, the 17th-floor pool room and Winter Garden create visual drama while inviting the outdoors in and allowing for natural light, fresh air and incredible New York City skyline and Central Park views. Residents can overlook both spaces from inside the state-of-the-art fitness center and yoga studio, which also boast arch-shaped windows. Lining a portion of the custom wood- and leather-paneled library on the ground floor are windows with French doors leading to a landscaped garden.
Beckford House & Tower
William Sofield, the mastermind behind gorgeous interiors for Tom Ford and Gucci stores all over the world, has designed Beckford House & Tower, an Upper East Side project that includes two prewar-inspired buildings.
They feature a nouveau classic facade with a series of Juliet balconies, intricate ironwork, expansive private setback terraces and dramatic arched windows. In designing the facade, he wanted to create subtle focal points that future inhabitants could see from the street, and use as a map in finding their home or bedroom window.
