Soho is known as the epicenter of retail, dining, and nightlife in New York City, and has continued to reverberate modern art and culture, making it a natural selection for Pritzker Prize-winning architect Renzo Piano to make his first residential mark in New York City.
565 Broome Soho is a stunning luxury condominium featuring architecture by world-renowned firm Renzo Piano Building Workshop (RPBW) and interiors by Parisian firm Rena Dumas Architecture Interieure (RDAI).
Piano is an Italian architect known for the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris (1977), The Shard in London (2012), and the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York City (2015). Now, he’s making his mark in the residential realm in NYC in partnership with Rena Dumas Architecture Interieure, Bizzi & Partners Development, Aronov Development, and Halpern Real Estate Venutres.
For 565 Broome Soho, Piano set out to create a building that is shaped by light.
This vision led him to design conjoined glass structures with curved corners, resulting in light-filled residences that breathe and offer 360-degree views of the Hudson River, One World Trade Center, and beyond.
A unique “low-iron” glass was selected for the exterior to allow the façade to take on the color of the weather, as well as to create clear views from the interiors. Piano believes that architecture is the art of creating emotion, and his design for 565 Broome Soho will allow both residents and passersby to have a visual relationship with the building.
All 112 residences, ranging from studios to four-bedroom condominium homes, were thoughtfully designed to maximize space and views. RPBW and RDAI enhanced the open layout of early industrial Soho lofts by utilizing ultra-transparent glass for the oversized windows and neutral tones to communicate harmony, calmness, and expansiveness.
Rather than applying the prototypical finishes to create the semblance of luxury, the architects find beauty in real materials: stone, white oak wood, glass, and concrete.
RPBW has long distinguished itself as a studio of craftspeople, taking great care about how building elements are made and put together. By keeping the material palette austere, the designers accentuate the quality of those materials. Like the historic cast iron architecture that has long defined Soho, the condominium residences for sale at 565 Broome Soho will be distinguished by the expression of key materials.
The lush amenity offerings at 565 Broome Soho span 17,000 square feet and feature a private gated driveway with entrance to a covered porte-cochere; a heated, 55-foot indoor swimming pool; changing rooms; steam rooms and sauna; a fitness center; children’s room; a beautifully-landscaped outdoor terrace; an interior landscaped lounge with 92-foot high ceiling and a live green walls, library, and wet bar. Additional conveniences include 24-hour concierge and attended lobby, common laundry room, and bicycle storage with 76 spots.
