This contemporary styled Upper West Side duplex was completed in 2015 by Andrew Franz Architect, located in the heart of New York City, New York. Comprised of a sumptuous 8,000 square feet of living space, this duplex combines together two apartments. The interiors are characterized by an organic, natural aesthetic, gracefully connected to the outdoors. The defining piece of this home is the structural bronze staircase, a dramatic focal point. Interior spaces are extended to the outdoors through retractable walls of glass. Through the glass awaits an expansive 2,800 square foot garden terrace. The outdoor space offers an awning-covered dining area and plenty of lounging spaces to enjoy an peaceful oasis in the heart of an urban city.
A light stained hardwood flooring runs throughout most of the living spaces, while a bluestone floor extends from the dining area to the terrace’s softscape herb garden. This creates a seamless connection from the inside living spaces to the outdoors. “A palette of handcrafted elements reflect the family’s love of nature, while artwork, carpets and upholstery celebrate their South Asian heritage,” states the architects.
What We Love: This Upper West Side duplex features captivating views over the New York City skyline through expansive windows and from a spectacular garden terrace. From trendy designer furnishings to incredible finishes and materials throughout, this home offers luxe living at its finest. We especially love the organic staircase, a sculptural art piece that makes this home true eye candy. What do you think, are you loving the design of this duplex?
