WATERFALL MANSION 170 EAST 80TH STREET

A MODERN MANSION IN NEW YORK www.WaterfallMansion.com


Waterfall Mansion

Designed by Toshiko Mori Architects, the mansion is a five-level townhouse with nine rooms, eight bathrooms, a spa lounge, art gallery, real grass roof garden/terraces and an elevator. “The mansion is the most exciting and significant property available in the New York townhouse market due to its high-end design, unparalleled amenities, eco-friendly features and premier location in Manhattan.” “The design of 170 East 80th Street redefines the Manhattan townhouse, which is typically known for its long and narrow footprint with dimly lit and cramped spaces.” “By bringing natural elements indoors and reframing the townhouse typology, the new design creates a spacious open plan awash in daylight, providing moments of calm and tranquility throughout the home.” Kate Shin, President of WEmi:t LLC

The Style and Feel

The mansion’s design incorporates elements from Eastern and Western cultures. It’s a mix of classic and modern. The townhouse’s original 19th century façade has been restored but the inside of the home has been transformed into a modern mansion. The innovative design introduces abundant natural daylight and additional elements such as air and water into an existing structure, creating a serene open space for today’s contemporary lifestyle. There are also more than 40 custom-made windows and skylights in the mansion to ensure spaces would be naturally illuminated throughout the day. A new 50-foot light well rising through the center of the home also draws daylight into the property and improves natural ventilation. Extraordinary space design where Art and Architecture meet.

COMMERCIAL GALLERY/SCULPTURE GARDEN • Gallery is commercially zoned: can be leased or utilized as a private gallery or as an extension of the private residence • The mansion’smostunique“West-Meets- East” feature is the 23-foot high by 20-foot wide indoor waterfall – which cascades into a reflecting pool that is surrounded by a sculpture garden, next to the gallery floor. A sculpture garden at the base of the double height waterfall provides a space for quiet contemplation, while the dramatic height allows the fall’s soothing sounds to travel throughout the space. The waterfall also provides a sense of serenity, light and drama to the ground floor gallery space. • Gallery floor (horizontal) and waterfall (vertical wall) are both made with natural limestone, all imported directly from Italy. The elegant “limestone carpet” extends from the front door and climbs up the waterfall to the ceiling.

• Waterfall feature: The two-story sloped waterfall wall required waterfall specialists and structure engineers to fine-tune its pressure and flow. The strategic concept was to have the water splash in such a way that is maximally soothing to the human ear because it is indoors and part of a residence. The sub structures of the waterfall are jointed with 9 pieces of fiberglass to adjust to any kind of movement for its magnificent scale while enhancing structural enforcement. It features an adjustable wave action digitized controller, which allows you to program a particular wave size and different patterns. This will allow the wave patterns to be changed from 20 feet away.
