Performance Artist Marina Abramović Sells her Urban Glass House Apartment for $3 Million
You might have expected the apartment of Marina Abramović to be intense and dark with large, empty spaces for the world-renowned performance artist to create her highly experimental work, but instead her home is pleasant and light-filled with contemporary furnishings and pops of color. She’s leaving the two-bedroom, corner unit at the Urban Glass House, though, as it’s sold for $2.995 million, according to city records.
The 1,722-square-foot condo has stunning views, looking out towards SoHo and Greenwich Village, as well as floor-to-ceiling windows, 10-foot ceilings, and French white-oak flooring. The sleek kitchen features a Bulthaup stainless steel backsplash, black granite counters, and anthracite linoleum cabinetry. High-end appliances like a Kuppersbusch five-burner cook top, oven, and hood, Sub-Zero fridge and freezer, Miele dishwasher, and Viking wine cooler make this a dreamy space for cooking and entertaining. Both bathrooms stand out with Kota Blue limestone and radiant heat flooring.
The Urban Glass House, located at 330 Spring Street at the south end of Soho, opened in 2005 to the design of renowned architects Philip Johnson and Alan Ritchie. It was Johnson’s last project before his death, and the cube-like building follows the International Style of Modernism that he made famous with his Glass House in New Canaan, Connecticut. Annabelle Selldorf designed the interiors. Abramović bought apartment 8A in April 2013 for $2.65 million, netting her a very small profit with the recent sale. We wonder where she’s heading now…
