Just steps from the East River waterfront esplanade, 101 Wall Street is a singularly elegant example of the many architectural gems that bring depth and texture to lower Manhattan’s intimately scaled streets. Our main focus for the interior design of 101 Wall Street in 2013 was to transform an architectural grand old lady, beautifully located in a rapidly developing area, into a luxury residential building for a sophisticated, design savvy audience. We embraced the beautiful view over the river and the generous amount of natural light and accommodated this in the design and layout, to enrich the total living experience as much as possible.
The subtle ornamentation of 101 Wall Street’s façade is highlighted with accents of brass at the lobby entrance. The lobby features a honed limestone floor and concierge desk, elegant new lighting, furnishings by Piet Boon, and the original ornate brass elevator doors.
The rich Art Deco heritage of 101 Wall Street is echoed in simple, yet sophisticated contemporary interiors. Bespoke entry and interior doors with inset panels set a tone of subtle luxury that is further enhanced by new oversized casement windows, wide-plank herringbone floors, tall custom baseboards, and beamed ceilings. Spacious, light-filled layouts, some with corner Living Rooms, offer a tranquil retreat.
