This unique condo was designed by and for the renowned international designer Tui Pranich. As the listing says, his principle was that “good design takes into account not only the aesthetics, but how life within that space will actually be lived.” Pranich had a lot to work with: the two-bedroom apartment occupies the historic Bank Building at 300 West 14th Street in the West Village and is decorated by one of the building’s original arched windows that soars nearly 17 feet tall. It’s now hit the market for $3.45 million.
The combined living and dining room stretches a grand total of 44 feet, and the 17-foot-tall window covers the entire north-facing wall.
The living area stretches to the back of the apartment and a wall of floor-to-ceiling glass where it opens up onto a private 225-square-foot garden terrace.
Overlooking the dining area is an open-concept kitchen with stainless steel countertops and backsplash, bamboo cabinetry and a concrete-topped, eat-in island.
A bedroom off the living room has its own direct access to the garden. An upstairs level is taken up by the master suite with an ensuite bathroom and a dressing area. Because its open to the dining room below, the space benefits from the natural light from the massive arched window, while maintaining a nice degree of privacy.
The bank building is located just west of Union Square. It was built in 1907 as the County National Bank and has since been converted into a six-story, 10-unit boutique condominium. The building has maintained its impressive Beaux-Arts exterior as well as its original antique steel vault, which is visible from the lobby.
