432 Park Avenue recorded its first closing last week: a 4,000-square-foot, 35th-floor pad that sold for a cool $18.1 million. For the critics who find the supertower’s minimalist exterior and Deborah Berke-designed interiors a bit too austere, take a peek at this layout designed by the classically-attuned firm of Atelier & Co.
The unit’s square footage and its north-, south-, and east-facing exposures are akin to the unit that closed last week. Raphel Viñoly/WSP Cantor Seinuk’s structural tube design provides column-free layouts, allowing for flexible reconfiguration of interior spaces. For this 40th floor spread, Atelier nearly doubles the size of the master bedroom and removes the sitting room to create a vast living and dining area dissected by a grand and ornate bookcase.
Seamlessly melding Neo-Classical stylings into a modern skyscraper, Atelier’s illustrations depict a shrine in the sky adorned with coffered ceilings, columned entryways, intricately-detailed wood floors, and marble galore. According to the designers, “The plan employs a traditional enfilade with open loft layout to emphasize the grand scale of the rooms and the extraordinary vistas from the 40th floor. A ‘collector’s bookcase’ creates a stunning yet functional screen, artfully defining the living and dining spaces.” Atelier also notes that the interior was influenced by the geometries of Raphael Viñoly’s design, as well as its origins in the early 19th century work of Schinkel and Von Klenze.
So in case you’re looking for place to drop your anticipated $1.5 billion lottery winnings, a handful of 432 Park’s residences remain on the market for you to create your very own palace in the sky. Available units range from a $17.4 million two-bedroom unit on the 42nd floor to a five-bedroom $76.5 million penthouse on the 88th floor.
