In the ever-evolving landscape of architectural design, certain concepts have an enduring appeal that transcends time. One such concept is the interior courtyard – a secluded oasis nestled within the confines of a building, offering a serene escape from the bustling city outside. While this idea has its roots in history, from the tranquil courtyards of medieval monasteries to the urban retreats of Paris and Shanghai, it has recently experienced a renaissance in the heart of the Big Apple. The interior courtyard, once a rare luxury, is now a defining feature of the New York City luxury real estate market.
111 Charles Street
In the iconic West Village, a neighborhood that exudes historic charm and cultural significance, 111 Charles Street is the first new construction of its kind in the neighborhood in five years. Nestled within this residential building is a landscaped courtyard, a verdant escape harmoniously juxtaposed with the bustling streetscape.
Tucked away next to the Resident’s Lounge, this landscaped courtyard offers a retreat from the bustling streets of the West Village. Amid lush plantings and a harmonious blend of natural elements, residents find respite in the form of a BBQ station, a kitchen area, and inviting built-in seating. Here, the past and present coexist, creating an environment where history and modern living harmoniously converge.
Anagram Columbus Circle
Leading the charge in this trend is Anagram Columbus Circle, an upcoming luxury residential building set to open its doors this fall. Nestled in its namesake neighborhood, Anagram Columbus Circle is not merely a residence – it’s an experience. The rents range from $4,600 to $26,000 for studios through 4 bedrooms and the penthouses start at $26,000 per month.
A centerpiece of Anagram Columbus Circle’s allure is the Conservatory. This exquisite indoor-outdoor communal space is a part of a 13,000-square-foot, three-level, indoor-outdoor spread of amenities. The Zen-inspired oasis serves as a tranquil escape for residents, complete with ample seating, verdant surroundings, and even a resident herb garden. As the seasons change, this courtyard adapts; in warmer months, it’s a hub of relaxation and socializing, while the colder months witness a transformation as the space is winterized for year-round enjoyment.
Nestled along the tranquil East River waterfront in Astoria, Queens, Astoria West stands as a sprawling rental complex spanning an impressive 522,000 square feet. Comprising three interconnected buildings, this establishment takes the concept of an interior courtyard to new heights.
Accessible from the lobby, the private courtyard of Astoria West is a testament to the serenity that water and greenery can bring to urban living. Amid abundant greenery and stately trees, this garden is a haven where residents can bask in nature’s embrace. Whether it’s for work, relaxation, or unwinding after a demanding day, the landscaped courtyard offers a tranquil escape for residents to recharge amidst the vibrant energy of the city.
