Located in the Manhattan’s East Village, New City Penthouses are new models built above the famous Theater for the New City, one of New York City’s leading Off-Off Broadway theaters known for radical political plays and community commitment.
Spectacular panoramic views of Murray Hill, Union Square, and Williamsburg immediately catch your eye as you peer through the double width windows encircling the vast open space within each of two beautiful penthouse suites.
The full eastern exposure provides abundant sunlight as you will soon begin your day with that perfect cup of morning coffee.
Two large modern kitchens occupy the penthouse apartments on the top floor (Suite 1 and 2), each in warm cherry shaker with stainless steel and frosted glass, with a large central island accompanied by a glass and stainless exhaust hood as the focal point.
There is a Bosch built-in oven and Miele cook top inside each island with drawers on each side. 2″ Black onyx granite counter tops and back splashes cover the base cabinet and island surfaces.
Both have slightly different configurations, the most notable difference being the structural “V” column in Suite 1, which presented a definite design challenge that 4SDI embraced and met with a creative solution. The base cabinets in cherry were custom made in the shop to fit between the structure, while the black onyx granite counter tops were notched onsite into the V-structure. The base cabinet has a small under-the-counter sink with Hansgrohe faucet.
Upper cherry and frosted glass cabinetry was suspended from the column ceiling by cylindrical brushed aluminum vertical posts, and a single row of horizontal cherry shelving extends from each side of the outside upper cabinets to the inside of the V-column.
To fill the triangular voids behind the shelving, here we used a sturdy tempered frosted glazing meticulously cut to each exact triangular-shaped size opening. To complete the structure, the same tempered frosted glazing was carried to the back splashes.
Suite 2 has built-in double Miele oven column and stainless steel refrigerator to the left end, and a 10′ high triple storage pantry to the right end of the kitchen.
Both Suites 1 and 2 have under-the-counter stainless steel Franke sinks inside each of the main base cabinet rows with dishwashers to the right side, the only difference being Suite 1 with a Fischer Paykel double drawer dishwasher and Suite 2 having a Bosch stainless steel door dishwasher.
