Now on the market asking $2,500,000, this full-floor loft co-op at 137 West Broadway in Tribeca recently served as the office, art studio, and pied-à-terre of renowned late architect Rafael Viñoly. Viñoly, who designed notable buildings like 432 Park Avenue, 277 Fifth Avenue, and Three Waterline Square, kept the space until his passing in March of this year, overseeing renovations and using the living room walls to create life-sized figure drawings on wall-sized sketch pads.

The apartment was purchased by the late architect’s son and colleague, Roman Viñoly, who lived there from 2001 until 2019. Rafael took over the space in 2020 until his death this year.

Enter the home via a direct-access elevator that opens into a gracious foyer. At the heart of this classic downtown Manhattan space is a 12-by-60-foot great room surrounded by skyline views through massive arched windows, beneath 13-foot-tall ceilings. Custom white oak shelving and original wood columns and beams form the loft’s interior bones, with white oak flooring below.

A sleek, contemporary kitchen offers IceStone glass worktops, custom wood cabinetry, and top-of-the-line appliances done in subtle gray tones. Tucked into a convenient pantry is a Bosch washer/dryer.

A king-sized bedroom boasts two arched windows framing the city’s western skyline. A wall-to-wall bank of closets includes a capacious custom walk-in. One of the home’s many space-saving custom designs: A swiveling TV screen visible to both the bedroom and the living area.

A luxurious bath offers a massive translucent sliding door, a 10-foot-long IceStone vanity, and a wall-length storage mirror. A Duravit deep soaking tub is served by a towel warming rack.

The building’s cast iron storefront features fluted Corinthian columns beneath four stories of Ohio freestone. Originally built in 1867 as the Jacob Pecare store, the classic loft co-operative building contains just five units and boasts a recently redesigned lobby.
