Upper West Side Penthouse: An Urban Modern Home in New York City
Many homes are located in the heart of the city. Even if they cannot enjoy the views of trees and waters or even mountains, at least they are able to get a wonderful view of the city. People who loves the urban life would certainly like to live in a place where they can see rushing cars and the mesmerizing city lights. I know you know some homes that are located in the city just like what we are going to show you today.
The Upper West Side Penthouse is located in New York City and got a major gut renovation. We can see in the images below that the work of the Turett Collaborative Architects (TCA) was really amazing. Floor-to-ceiling windows frame the various aspects of the New York skyline. In the interior, it used a neutral color palette where the homeowner’s extensive South Asian art collection were displayed.
