residentialTrump World Tower Penthousehide
The breathtaking views become the focus of this 20,000 square foot penthouse as the movement is along the façade rather than the interior corridors. Spaces that were once private, such as the home office and wine cellar, now become glass box screens that help to divide the space. In such a structured environment, the stairs were designed to trace the gentle movement of the body from the main floor to the view and further up to the private spaces.
Trump World Tower is a residential skyscraper at 845 United Nations Plaza at First Avenue between 47th and 48th Streets) in New York City. Construction began in 1999 and concluded in 2001. Designed by the Greek architect Costas Kondylis, the building is 861 feet high and has 72 constructed floors with curtain wall facades of dark, bronze-tinted glass. The resulting large windows allow for extensive views of the East River and midtown Manhattan. The building is constructed with concrete to improve its wind resistance.
