Residence 16F comprises 1,425 square feet, offering one bedroom, one-and-a-half bathrooms, and south and north-facing exposures. Gracious proportions and ceilings ranging up to approximately 10'3" set the awe-inspiring stage for world-renowned designer, Thierry Despont, to craft residences with many custom elements typically reserved for privately commissioned homes. These museum-quality finishes coalesce with expressive architecture by Pritzker Prize-winner Jean Nouvel to create singular spaces of unsurpassed grandeur and elegance in both scale and proportion.

The proper entry gallery leads to a generous great room, lined with floor-to-ceiling windows that artfully frame south-facing views. An adjacent pair of dramatic pocket doors open to reveal the custom kitchen by Thierry Despont for Molteni, where polished statuary marble countertops and a back-lit statuary marble backsplash complement back-painted glass cabinetry with polished nickel detailing and Dornbracht fixtures. The extensive suite of appliances by Miele and Sub-Zero includes a fully integrated refrigerator and freezer, four-burner cooktop with fully vented hood, integrated dishwasher, wall oven, speed oven, and under-counter wine refrigerator.

The large primary bedroom is pin-drop quiet offering a large walk-in closet and a spa-like ensuite bathroom that blends tradition with originality. Elegantly appointed in polished Noir St. Laurent marble, high-honed Verona limestone, and polished Persian golden travertine with polished nickel Dornbracht fixtures throughout, the primary bathroom features a custom carved double vanity, cast iron Lefroy Brooks soaking tub, freestanding shower, and radiant heated floors. A beautifully appointed powder room and discreet utility closet with washer and vented dryer complete the residence. No detail has been overlooked, from the custom interior lighting design by Thierry Despont in collaboration with Schwinghammer, to the motorized Lutron solar shades throughout with additional blackout shades in the bedroom, to the supply of humidified and filtered fresh air throughout the home.
