Penthouse, Fifth Avenue, New York
This penthouse was originally built by Arthur Brisbane as his triplex residence on Fifth Ave. During the Great Depression, the triplex was subdivided into many smaller apartments and grand double height living room floor infilled.
The renovation combines 3 apartments into a single residence, connecting the penthouse and the 15th floor apartments via an internal private stair. Penthouse views to Central Park and Tri Borough Bridge is maximized by expanding the windows. The penthouse living spaces have unprecedented views to Central Park and the city skyline with a continuous open terrace on all 3 sides.
