Loft Peeping: Ritz-Carlton Duplex

The September issue of Interior Design features a duplex apartment in the Ritz-Carlton New York, Battery Park building. It was designed by architect West Chin, who had some familiarity with the clients and the site: “Five years ago, when the Ritz-Carlton couple had one child and another on the way, they hired Chin to remodel a 2,900-square-foot apartment on the 37th floor,” writes Jane Margolies. “Later, the 4,250-square-foot penthouse above became available.” The clients considered trading up, but when they learned they’d soon have three children, they merged the apartments. (The old downstairs apartment will be for “home offices and guest quarters.”) The result is all clean lines and Corian—”not only on the kitchen but on bathrooms and windowsills as well”—all the better to show off the views. “Through the two window walls, the panorama encompasses the Statue of Liberty, Governors Island, and lots of action on the Hudson River-water taxis, ferries, and cruise ships churn by, leaving frothy V’s in their wake.” The Frothy V’s is a great name for a band. Eric Laignel took the photos; you can see more—including quite the towel bar—by clicking on the Interior Design link above. (Plus, the slideshow has captions.)

P.S. I wonder if “pondering the terrarium” is a euphemism in their household….
