6-Feb-2017 The Bryant is the first large-scale residential project in New York designed by the internationally-acclaimed British practice David Chipperfield Architects. The penthouse boasts elegantly framed floor-to-ceiling windows and sleek sliding doors that blur the division between inside and outside. The carefully considered interiors feature a statement Red Jasper marble fireplace, a windowed bath with hand-carved solid marble freestanding tub, and custom designed fumed oak millwork cabinetry with ergonomic pulls and soft-close drawers.
The Bryant is located at 16 West 40th Street directly on Bryant Park and above a boutique hotel, showcasing master architect Sir David Chipperfield’s vision for city living and granting soon-to-be residents soaring views of the park and the dramatic skyline to the south featuring the Empire State Building. Due to its landmarked surroundings, The Bryant will be the final development site on Bryant Park.
A hallmark of David Chipperfield Architects' design ethos is intelligent simplicity, a trait magnificently apparent with the latest addition to its portfolio. “The idea that the structure and the façade are the same thing, made out of polished concrete, will give the building a tectonic and physical presence. Through this, the building is reduced down to elements of columns and windows, of solid and void, mass and space,” said Sir David Chipperfield. “I think you can make architecture out of very simple things, it doesn’t have to be complicated. The difference between a good building and a bad building normally resides in it being more thought about.”
