Hirsch Residence, 101 East 63rd Street, New York, NY, 1966


 

This property is often referred to as the Halston Residence after the well-known clothing designer who owned it for many years.

 

“A world of its own, inward looking and secretive, is created in a relatively small volume of space in the middle of New York City. Varying intensities of light are juxtaposed and related to structures within structures. Simple materials (plaster, paint) are used, but the feeling is of great luxuriousness because of the space. The one exposed façade reveals the interior arrangement of volumes by offsetting each floor and room in plan and section.”

Above quotation by the architect.
