The personally designed apartment of Pritzker Prize-winning architect Thom Mayne – who founded Morphosis Architects and designed Cooper Union’s quirky 41 Cooper Square building – is back on the market and asking $3.29 million. Mayne bought the 2,000-square-foot co-op at 85 Mercer Street in 2007 for $2.67 million, the Post reported. After eight years of living there, he sold it in 2015 for $3.15 million.
The unit is located on the second floor of a five-story apartment building containing a total of 16 apartments. The space’s essence as “a quintessential Soho loft,” most attracted Mayne to the property originally, the listing’s broker, Ian Slater of Compass, told the Post. Slater further noted that Mayne “modernized the unit with central air, a chef’s kitchen and updated bathrooms.”
An oversized one-bedroom with room for the addition of a second bedroom, the space boasts tin ceilings, original floors, oversized windows, metal shutters, and exposed Corinthian columns. There are two bathrooms, the ceilings shoot up to a whopping 14 feet (the highest in the building), and Mayne added top of the line appliances, including a Valcucine chef’s kitchen. The bathrooms have custom finishes, there’s a wine cooler, dishwasher, in-unit washer and dryer, central AC and tons of storage, with an additional 200-square-foot “garage-sized” storage space in the basement.
