No. 33 Park Row: RSHP’s first New York residential project completes
No. 33 Park Row is Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners’ first foray into residential architecture in New York
Rogers Stirk Harbour and Partners’ latest residential project, No. 33 Park Row, has just completed in New York. The scheme, commissioned by developers Centurion Real Estate Partners, is also the very first design by the famed London based practice to join the Big Apple’s luxury residential scene. The design was led by Pritzker Prize-winning architect Richard Rogers and Graham Stirk.
No. 33 Park Row strategically overlooks lower Manhattan’s historic City Hall Park – and not just that, but every single of the residences inside has views of its green expanses. The development features just 30 homes, from one to five-bedroom apartments and penthouses, within a sleek structure that bears many of the hallmarks of a RSHP building. Signature copper screen fins arranged across the facades bring to mind previous projects from the firm, such as One Hyde Park in London. An elegant combination of glass and metal accompany a modern, if slightly industrial approach that remains however perfectly suited to its domestic use.
While the boutique development’s scale is intimate, its residences are anything but, providing generous floorspace and wall-to-wall and floor-to-ceiling windows which make each unit feel even roomier. The apartment interior design features a clean aesthetic, crisp white walls and high ceilings to match the overall architectural approach, while allowing the views to steal the spotlight.
Residents’ amenities include a fifth floor indoor/outdoor fitness center and yoga studio; an outdoor kitchenette and dining area; a 24-hour doorman attended lobby and concierge; a generous rooftop terrace, library, craft studio, screening room and bike storage.
Finding its place at the nexus of Tribeca and Financial District, No. 33 Park Row balances a sense of old and new, open and private - and all just a stone’s throw from the architectural gardens of City Hall Park. §
