Workshop/APD Creates a Luxurious Penthouse in New York

2023 Best of Year Winner for Large Apartment

For repeat clients, Workshop/APD elevated a developer-delivered penthouse duplex in New York by instating luxury and shapeliness via an envelope of serene neutrals, sinuous elements, and top-notch materials. Take the gently curved burled-wood staircase and Venetian plaster finishes in the living room, and the main bedroom’s wall of antiqued mirror. Furnishings include enviable classics such as seating by Vladimir Kagan, José Zanine Caldas, and Eero Saarinen. Art curated by Barbara Cartategui gives pride of place to Jaume Plensa’s stairwell-adjacent sculpture. While light and airiness pervade the 5,800-square-foot dwelling, which boasts sweeping downtown views, more saturated exceptions appear. One is the moody charcoal-gray media room, a stage for cozy evenings of at-home movies.
