22 Central Park South

November 27, 2016

22 Central Park South is a landmarked condominium building containing 6 full-floor residences and a duplex penthouse.

Hill West won approval from the Landmarks Preservation Commission to renovate the small building attached to the Plaza Hotel. From a non-descript building with exterior fire escapes, a subway entrance in the base, and numerous challenges, Hill West created a jewel-like residential condominium that draws from historic details in the surrounding context without overshadowing the historic Plaza next door.

A penthouse and balcony, setback above a cornice line, are designed at the top of the building taking full advantage of proximity to Central Park without being visible from the street. Limestone is carried into the subway and the public entry is integrated into the building base with a glass and metal frieze above the entry that marries with the decorative residential entry canopy. The ornate metalwork in the Juliette balconies and the prominent stone sills are drawn from contextual historic details, while the large windows sit in recessed frames far more modern and clean that the profiled openings of the nearby Plaza.

22 Central Park South is rich with details that both embed the building in its historic contrast and set it apart as an example of modern luxury.

We collaborate with our affiliated interiors firm, Whitehall to create holistic buildings that are as thoughtfully designed on the interior as they are on the exterior.
