Viewing from the living room awash with morning light, one sees a terraced garden and a City park beyond. The house has German tilt-turn triple-pane windows with the spaces between panes filled with argon, an inert gas, that prevents frost in the winter and moisture corrosion. Heavier than air, argon also blocks both sound from the outside world and harmful ultraviolet sunlight. Designed to benefit from the light shaft, all bathrooms and kitchen have windows, thereby allowing cross ventilation. Special room darkening shades block lights at night. Invite your guests with an intercom system off the kitchen. The floors, made from wormy maple hardwood, were harvested from a certified sustainably managed forest (i.e., no clear felling) in New York State. The floor was coated with polyurethane, and treated with ultraviolet light on the final coat to seal in any of the finishing chemicals. That prevents off-gassing, and the chemical bond increases the wood's durability. Lighting throughout is by LEDs, which last far longer than traditional incandescent bulbs, use a small fraction of the electricity, and are sleek and elegant. Heating and cooling, when necessitated, is through an air filtered, energy efficient heat pump. The façade, an abstraction of the sky and inspired in part by Portuguese 18th century azulejo panels and façades, is made from ceramic masonry, with a glaze derived from recycled materials. Other notable features include: heavily insulated throughout for temperature control, installed sound attenuation in all ceilings and perimeter walls, wired for all needs including internally with fiber optic cable, and assured of privacy with a separate entrance, comfortable and stylish living is assured.
The bedrooms are spacious with large west facing windows over looking a lovely organic vegetable and flower garden (30' x 40') that residents may enjoy as a viewing garden from their separate terrace. The kitchen offers everything one expects in a luxury rental yet focuses on environmental concerns, with the best energy saving appliances, dish washer inlcuded, special bio-based Marmoleum flooring that is highly durable, non-toxic, and anti-microbial. Both bathrooms have radiant heat flooring and Toto wall-hung dual-flush toilets. Showers are glass surrounded, and Italian glass tiled walls compliment the Italian porcelain floors. Ample closet space, six in total all with automated lights, and distinct work areas further underscore the attention to contemporary lifestyles of this architect-designed apartment. In sum, emphasis is on private independent living in quiet elegance and uniqueness.
