The showstopping city views from this Manhattan pied-à-terre created a clear directive for architect Wayne Turett. “The client's main objective was to display the view,” he explains. “It comes down to not distracting you when you're looking out the window.” So Turett and his team specified a mostly white palette for the ultra-minimalist, 3,400-square-foot apartment, including white lacquered columns, polished white quartz floors, and a glossy, white-painted ceiling.
“It celebrates New York City,” remarked a judge. “It really takes glamorous architecture to the extreme, in a fun way.”
