February 7, 2010 Apartment
Description from Bonetti/Kozerski Design Studio :
Duplex residence in a building from 1930 overlooking Central Park.
The apartment was redesigned by Robert Stern in the early seventies, then altered by Michael Graves in 1978 and finally received a gut renovation for a young family in 1986.
This renovation adapted the apartment to the new needs of the same family, whose children had moved out. It features a new expanded open living space and dining area that is centered around a double-sided fireplace with an extended hearth in hand-cut walnut travertine. The upper floor has a wide master bedroom with a wood platform along the entire length of the window wall, leading out to a narrow terrace with spectacular views of the park.

Jewell Box is Tropical House was designed by Magnus Architects.
From Architects : ” Having traveled the world, the owners wanted to come home to their own tropical paradise.
The garage/study was separated from the main house, creating a view corridor from the rear yard to the bay. the canopy overhang develops a tropical lanai; it directs prevailing western breezes across the second story windows and shades the expanse of glass from southern exposure. ”
