Tribeca apartment description

This is a spectacular place, designed by an Italian architect for his own family. It has been published in the New York Times and in several architectural magazines, and it has also been used as a stage for movies and TV commercials.
It is located in a quiet artists' building in the heart of Tribeca, close to all subway lines, and it is served by elevator.
The loft has an exceptional architectural quality revealed by refined space and light articulations. It employs a minimal/essential language, enriched by Japanese touches, oriental sculptures, and a surprising art collection. The most dramatic architectural element is the double-height central open space, functioning as an Italian "piazza". This space accommodates several areas specifically designed to support cooking, drinking, conversation, relaxation, listening to music, watching TV or movies, casual and formal dining. The three bedrooms are all at the mezzanine level, opening on the central "piazza". The atmosphere is pure magic, with the central space acting as a living theatre.
The loft is beautiful and comfortable, warm and cozy. Most of the furniture is on casters, a design arrangement that allows to change the space configuration and adapt the space to the needs of the users.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1975

                      About the owner: I am an Italian architect headquartered in New York City since 1970. I design residential and hotel projects, exhibitions and interiors. I have extensive experience in urban design, restoration, and sustainable development. I have founded and directed two non-profit organizations focused, respectively, on art & landscape, and urban & environmental advocacy planning. I am currently involved in the design and development of an eco-friendly tourist resort in the island of Vieques (PR), the restoration of a small 17th Century fortified settlement in Sicily (Italy) to be converted into an Artists' Village, the design of an Autistic Village in Ponce (PR), and the design of a new waterfront residential community in Cartagena (Colombia).

                      Why the Owner Chose Tribeca:
                      New York City is, for me, the most vibrant and energetic city in the world, a crossroad of cultures, creative minds, and powerful interests. Spending time in New York always provides a boost of energy and a learning experience.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                      This property is strategically located between Soho and Wall Street, within walking distance from Chinatown, Little Italy, Nolita, Greenwich Village and the Lower East Side. This area features an intense street life, great restaurants, selected art galleries, off-off Broadway theaters, ethnic street markets, and wonderful quality stores.
