This gracious 1,140 SF one bedroom, one-and-a-half bath residence is one of a limited collection of distinct gallery-like loft residences sited in the podium of the building. Foster + Partners employ concrete elements within the lofts – floors finished in diamond-polished high-grade concrete and ribbed concrete ceilings. In the architect’s palette, concrete best expresses the power of structure and the energy of the city. Interiors elegantly conceal service functions, balance city views and domestic intimacy, and allocate generous space for art.
