Venerable Italian furniture maker Poltrona Frau has conceived an artful aerie in Renzo Piano’s 565 Broome SoHo, a new project comprising a pair of 30-story glass towers with 112 residences inside. While the famed architect, who helms Renzo Piano Building Workshop, has designed structures for Columbia University and the Whitney Museum, this project marks the Pritzker Prize winner’s first residential complex in New York City.

“Inspired by Renzo’s original design, we aimed to create a contemporary home that felt connected to the stunning metropolis below but still sheltered—an exceptional urban oasis,” Nicola Coropulis, CEO of Poltrona Frau, tells Galerie. The company was tapped by the project team, which included Bizzi & Partners Development, Halpern Real Estate Ventures, and Aronov Development, to outfit a full-floor model unit in the North Tower. Spread across 4,700 square feet, the four-bedroom dwelling has just hit the market for $16.95 million with Douglas Elliman.

The dining area is highlighted by a limited-edition Gianfranco Frattini Albero bookcase, which, with intricate cabinetry that runs from floor to ceiling, is a sculptural centerpiece.

Interiors

How Bill Sofield Is Pushing the Boundaries of Design at 111 West 57th

The interiors of the unit—which has private elevator access and is available fully furnished—were designed to evoke a sky-high art gallery, marrying Poltrona Frau’s ultrachic furnishings with dazzling works of art that came courtesy of Tribeca’s Denny Dimin Gallery. Among the ten artists on display are Erin O’Keefe, Matt Mignanelli, Amanda Valdez, and Andy Woll. The interior design was done by Rachel Doherty in collaboration with RDAI, which also crafted the development’s 17,000 square feet of amenity spaces, including two curated libraries, a catering kitchen, 55-foot indoor pool, and state-of-the-art fitness center.

Boasting floor-to-ceiling windows with coveted Hudson River views, the apartment itself is brimming with artful moments, like the sculptural Gianfranco Frattini wooden bookcase that unexpectedly anchors the dining area along with a table by Roberto Lazzeroni and light fixture by Neri & Hu. The living room, meanwhile, includes sumptuous furnishings by Ludovica and Roberto Palomba and Jean-Marie Massaud mixed with high-octane pieces by Andy Woll, Amanda Valdez, and Matt Mignanelli. “Paired beautifully with custom works of art from local artisans, our furnishings create a cohesive design story that communicates an effortless elegance fitting for such an open and breathtaking layout,” says Coropulis.

Another showstopping moment comes in the home office, which features a pair of a leather-clad swivel armchairs by Massuad and a mesmerizing canvas by artist Emily Noelle Lambert. The room also comes equipped with sweeping views of midtown Manhattan and pocket doors that seal the room completely shut—certainly a necessity for any extended work-from-home arrangement.
