SoHo meets European craft and luxury
Once a haven for a generation of modern artists, SoHo has become a center not only for retail, dining, and nightlife, but has continued as the nexus for arts and culture. With the transformation of the Hudson riverfront, outdoor recreation has also become part of the fabric of SoHo. 565 Broome SoHo’s luxury condominium residences mark a culmination within that neighborhood’s evolution, providing easy access to all of those amenities, even as it serves as a quiet retreat amidst the neighborhood bustle.
The 30-story structure will soar above its smaller scale surroundings, providing sweeping views of the city and the Hudson River. The remarkable sunsets that color the river and harbor will warm the residences at 565 Broome SoHo. Its materials will not only complement the historic context, but will also allow residents to take full advantage of the building’s panoramic views.
565 Broome SoHo is the result of a collaboration between Renzo Piano Building Workshop, the Paris interior design firm RDAI, and Italian developers, Bizzi & Partners Development. The European team brings a distinguished eye for craft and luxury, but, having overseen significant projects in New York, it also appreciates SoHo’s unique local character.
“The low-iron, extra wide glass, coupled with the mullions allows you to have a visual relationship with the building.” – Renzo Piano
Design & Amenities
For 565 Broome SoHo, Bizzi & Partners Development turned to two leaders in architecture, tapping Renzo Piano Building Workshop to come up with the project’s form and façades and RDAI to design the interiors. “It’s a great collaboration, which makes it easy to work together,” says RPBW principal Renzo Piano.
Both firms have developed an approach that creates luxurious spaces by emphasizing design quality and material craft. “We use materials in a very honest way,” explains Piano. “The character of the spaces is very rich.”
Rather than applying the prototypical finishes to create the semblance of luxury, the architects find beauty in real materials: stone, white oak wood, glass, and concrete.
RPBW has long distinguished itself as a studio of craftspeople, taking great care about how building elements are made and put together. By keeping the material palette austere, the designers accentuate the quality of those materials. Like the historic cast iron architecture that has long defined SoHo, the condominium residences for sale at 565 Broome SoHo will be distinguished by the expression of key materials.
Amenities include a 24-hour concierge and attended lobby, a private gated driveway and entrance with automated parking, beautifully landscaped outdoor terrace, 55-foot indoor swimming pool, fitness center and spa with sauna and steam rooms, interior landscaped lounge with 92’ ceilings, library, and wet bar.
One of the world’s most desirable places to live and work, SoHo has undergone several incarnations before getting to this point. Once part of the city’s manufacturing landscape, it became the epicenter of modern art in the 1960’s. While maintaining its artistic roots, the neighborhood is now a global shopping, dining, and cultural hub.
People now considered to be heros of modern art—including Donald Judd, Gordon Matta-Clark, Chuck Close, and Dorthea Rockburne—have transformed old factories into studios in which they could live and work, often using the lofty, open spaces to make the large artworks that have become so emblematic of the 20th century.
With new buildings, like 565 Broome SoHo, the legacy of architectural innovation in SoHo also takes on a 21st-century inflection.
