It's not often you have the opportunity to acquire an art piece as well as a home. The second floor of 112 PrinceStreet is a true contemporary masterpiece crafted by world renowned photographer, director and conceptual artist Michael Somoroff and acclaimed architect Stephen Wanta. Available for the first time in 25 years, this work of art is one of the most singularly unique properties, not only in Soho, but in all of NYC. Situated on the corner of Prince and Greene Streets, this floor through keyed elevator loft overlooks the classic architecture that defines the Cast Iron district and boasts an abundance of irreplaceable authentic details including restored wooden-beam ceilings, cast iron columns, wooden framed windows and 13 foot ceilings heights.
Sitting at an impressive 36' feet wide, the landmarked Cast Iron building lends itself perfectly to house this conceptual loft, expressing the tale of two distinct design periods. Upon entering the home you are greeted with dramatic sculptural volumes and and expansive great room showcasing 6 oversized wooden framed windows bathing the loft in all day light.
The living and dining space is designed in a post-modern style with impressive floor-to-ceiling sculptural volumes, individually crafted in Italian Marmoline by artisans on-site. These volumes flank an architecturally notable perimeter around the dining room, kitchen, and expansive entertaining area to the northern point of the loft. Raised gently to provide a stage for social gatherings and offer additional storage, the 'stage' is set in front of the impressive library and expertly designed home office. Adjacent to the great room is the dining room and eat-in-kitchen outfitted with best in class appliances, an incredible amount of storage and an abundance of counter-space.
Following the natural geometric flow of the lofts design, you head to the Southern portion of the loft where you will find the laundry room and keyed elevator entrance. Flowing into a more classical design style, the primary bedroom features an en-suite bathroom, standing shower, deep soaking jacuzzi tub and plenty of space to live out your artistic dreams in the heart of Soho.
Additional features include central air conditioning, common roof deck for residents and additional storage in the basement.
