Apartment at the Ansonia

Alexander Gorlin Architects as Architects

This pied-a-terre in the round turret of the Beaux-Arts landmark Ansonia building offers bright light and city views throughout. Although the dining room is at the center, its full height windows bring in exterior light to all the adjoining rooms. This small apartment is made to feel spacious and airy through an open corridor that allows one to see through to each room.

These views culminate in the round living room which is surrounded by windows on all sides and evokes the feeling of floating on a cloud. This apartment is also the setting of the best-selling thriller novel "Interpretation of a Murder." In the novel, the murder takes place in the round corner of this living room at the turn of the 20th Century.
