The master bath is as spectacular as rest of the penthouse with its accent wall in walnut and doors that usher in a dash of oriental charm. Complete with a wine cellar and man cave this remarkable New York home is all about enjoying life at its vivacious best!
The weathered and metallic appeal of the Cor-Ten Steel façade does give the lovely residence a uniqueness that draws your attention instantly even as the rest of the house embraces a far more familiar contemporary style.

The open living area is filled with bespoke décor from Vladimir Kagan that seems playful while blending in with the overall theme of the penthouse.

It is vertical Kayu Batu siding and white plastered balconies that refresh the façade of the house and give it a smart yet distinct new look. On the inside a white backdrop coupled with lovely mahogany surfaces ensures that the interior is both minimal and inviting.
The white plastered exterior not only allows the home to blend into the snowy slopes around it but also improves the insulation of the structure and ensures that the interior remains toasty warm during the frigid winter months.
