West Street Townhouse, New York
November 30, 2010 - New York
Designed by Sixx Design, this Richard Woods façade glass townhouse in the West Village features a juxtaposition of contemporary and vintage elements thematically threaded by exotic finishes, and offset by organic materiality and clean, modern lines and rugged frames - a modern home that retains the delight of the unexpected.
Encompassing 667 sq m of living space, the home features four bedrooms and an opulent master suite that occupies the entire third floor and includes a master bath with Swarovski Crystal light fixtures.
Unique elements include a half basketball court which converts to a home screening room with vintage theatre seating and the Sixx Design signature automatic glass garage door that leads to a stepped concrete terrace off the living room, creating an old European feel and the freedom to entertain in one's own private courtyard.
Other versatile living spaces include a massive, open Boffi kitchen centred around a beacon slab of white carrera marble, and a fifth-floor stone pallate and wood terrace overlooking Greenwich Village and the Empire State Building to the east, and the Hudson River to the west.
