The 73rd Street Penthouse is a project by Turett Collaborative Architects. This triplex penthouse in New York City’s Upper East Side is an innovative and high standards project.
The attention to detail on this triplex penthouse is unusually high thanks to a successful collaboration with a client interested in unique solutions without compromise. This meant traveling with the client to a remote quarry in the Swiss alps to hand pick the stone for the double-height wall around the 15-foot-wide fireplace. It meant creating a seamless walk-in soaking tub within an all glass room, made alternately opaque for privacy or perfectly clear at the flip of a switch. And it meant a soaring, meandering triple-height stair with laser-cut steel supports and translucent resin treads, cantilevering in places like stiff diving boards and bridging at higher levels, casting warm, orange-tinted shadows through the halls.
