TriBeCa Penthouse at the Greenwich Hotel by Axel Vervoordt – A sanctuary high above the corner of Greenwich Street and North Moore Street.
The TriBeCa Penthouse was created by Belgian designer Axel Vervoordt and Japanese architect Tatsuro Miki, in close collaboration with the hotel’s partners Ira Drukier and Robert De Niro. The 6,800 sq ft suite was inspired by the TriBeCa neighborhood’s industrial past fused with the ancient Japanese aesthetic of Wabi.
The large Master Suite features a king-sized bed, walk-in closet, fireplace and glass door leading out to the lower terrace gardens. A 19th century walnut tabletop was repurposed for the Master Bedroom headboard.
The en suite Master Bathroom features intricate stone floors, a custom bathtub and separate shower. The framework for the soaking tub and the double basin sink was crafted from a 17th Century stone water trough weathered and smoothed by time.
The Second Bedroom, with a king-sized bed, shares access with the third bedroom to a large bathroom featuring a steam room with rain shower and Japanese soaking tub. Each bronze door handle has been shaped from a clay mold of Axel Vervoordt’s hand in different positions.
The Penthouse design incorporates the philosophical beliefs of Wabi: beauty found in imperfection and authenticity; Artempo – where time becomes art; and poor materials that are rich in spirit.
Sustainable design is echoed throughout the interior and exterior space. Materials like stone, steel and reclaimed wood were carefully selected and thoughtfully utilized in every area of the penthouse.
The Penthouse offers a large open floorplan with multi-purpose living spaces, including a separate living room and drawing room, a full sized chef’s kitchen, three fireplaces, two and half bathrooms and three bedrooms. The private outdoor gardens on two levels span over 4,000 sq ft and feature a spa pool and dining for 18 guests.
We want to express a TriBeCa character in the most humble way. Because the architecture is so simple, it belongs as much to the past as to the future.
