Widely considered Soho’s most architecturally significant residence, this exquisite, one-of-a-kind penthouse is the crown jewel of 94 Thompson Street; one of the most coveted enclaves in Manhattan’s toniest ZIP code. A harmonious synthesis of indoor and outdoor living, this dazzling aerie was ingeniously conceived by architects Nico Rensch and Victoria Blau as an antidote to mundanity. The world’s rarest and most exquisite natural materials adorn every surface, and mingle to indulge every sense. Hand-rubbed larch wood warms expanses of honed volcanic basalt, collaborating to conjure a serene, modern palette. Soaring panels of glass dissolve boundaries and celebrate light and tranquility, most evocatively in the resplendent zen garden that unites the space. The triple-height great room boasts baronial proportions, a grand fireplace, 23-foot ceilings, and doubles as a world-class home theater. The banquet-size dining room can attract attention as the center of the home for expansive gatherings, or disappear completely at the touch of a button. Similarly, the glass-enclosed kitchen houses a trove of professional-grade appliances, all concealed behind a paneled wall. The master suite is an unrivaled meditative oasis, and its spa bathroom is a study in ingenuity and glorious personal indulgence.
High above, three lushly planted terraces on two levels offer approximately 2,200 square feet of private outdoor space. Equipped for entertaining on a grand scale, but thoughtfully designed with the needs of the individual in mind, the upper terrace offers panoramic 360 degree views of the iconic downtown skyline, providing an idyllic, ever-changing backdrop.
94 Thompson Street is a boutique cooperative with a sterling reputation for preserving the privacy and quietude of its residents. Converted to a luxury co-op in 2000, the building features two entrances — the private entrance on Thompson Street, and an attended lobby on West Broadway. Residents enjoy a full-time superintendent, a keyed elevator, video intercom, and private storage, as well as flexible policies on pets and pieds-a-terre.
