Keep reading to learn more about this one-of-a-kind residence at the hottest address in Downtown Manhattan.

Vergniol has worked with One Wall Street developer Harry Macklowe on a number of projects and was brought on board to craft a model residence at One Wall Street after the pair spent time together antiquing at the Paris Flea Market. Like One Wall Street itself, the design for Residence 2516 is a celebration of old and new, combining carefully sourced vintage furniture dating back as far as the 1960s with contemporary elements that speak to the modern New York skyline as well as the original vision for the tower laid down nearly a hundred years ago by architect Ralph Walker. 

One Wall Street is a monument to art deco excellence, but Vergniol wanted to push the boundaries with Residence 2516, expanding the references into the rest of the 20th century, including touches that play off the French surrealist movement of the 1950s, silhouettes of towers surrounding One Wall Street, and contemporary elements that blend with the antique pieces to create a timeless ambiance all its own. For example, in the sitting room, swooping vintage chairs and a sofa are framed by floor-to-ceiling windows, while a rococo desk brings a touch of European style to the private living room.

The designer worked with legendary New York antique shop Maison Gerard to source many of the home’s items, including Swedish lamps from the 1970s, vases by William Kage, Austrian wall sconces, and Danish armchairs from the 1960s, all of which have been carefully arranged by Vergniol to tell the story of 20th-century design on both sides of the Atlantic. The home also features some custom elements, including a spider web-themed carpet celebrating the work of French-sculptor-turned-New-York-artist Louise Bourgeois. 

This three-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bath home is available as-is and features a large foyer, ample closet space, and an expansive private terrace with Northeast exposure for unbeatable sunrise views. Contact our team to schedule a tour of model residence 2516 today!
