Nighttime is especially scenic at this 3,000 square foot bi-level penthouse lounge and outdoor room in the heart of midtown Manhattan at AKA Times Square. The wraparound design was created by architect Piero Lissoni.
A long, narrow lap pool with an adjoining spa feature from Lang Pools blends in perfectly with the surrounding rock garden, rows of boxwoods and decking in a design by Lang Pools that makes the most of a compact yard.
This is the view from the rear of the owner’s residence with its elegant swimming pool and well-tended rose garden (on the right beyond the frame of the photo). The ultimate outdoor space for entertaining guests, it now adjoins the newly landscaped property on the right side of the estate.
A different photographic angle allows you to see the other side of the courtyard’s stone wall (at an earlier phase) and the lush green lawn which runs along the border and curves around to the far corner of the lot which is marked by an enticing garden folly (the mini-Greek temple).
What was once the front yard entrance to a mid-century ranch house is now the site of a two story pavilion with a manicured lawn and formal garden. The pavilion adjoins the owner’s estate on the left while the far right side of the formal garden is where the driveway once existed from the previous home.
