462 West 23rd Street is a Landmarked Italianate Style 1862 Town Home with a wider, atypical width of 22 feet for the Landmarked neighborhood of Chelsea, and an oversized lot for a sculpture garden. It was completely redesigned with a loft feel and an open plan both vertically and horizontally.
462 West 23rd Street is a type of lifestyle, designed to be filled with light and air. The floor-to-ceiling windows, balconies and open stairwell all have a curative purpose. A place that’s open and light and airy makes one naturally feel better. In the noise of the city, the house provides a calm portal filled with the sounds of birds from the garden. A private interior world focused around a central stairwell rising 7 flights to a penthouse with a glass roof.
