An open living area on the second floor with a living room dining room and kitchen along with a media room and an open-air courtyard acts as the heart of the house. Tranquil and cozy bedrooms spa-like home bathrooms and a relaxing sauna and steam room complete this fabulous Tribeca penthouse.
Oversized windows large glass doors three expansive terraces and smartly placed skylights that usher in ample ventilation ensure that the line between the indoors and the world outside is blurred. Taking advantage of the lovely city skyline views outside the focus is kept on creating a vibrant home that allows you to take in the many sights and sounds of the iconic city.
Step inside and this theme of using water to shape the structure and give it a unique aura continues with a reflective pool that enhances the appeal of the sleek exterior. Large glass windows doors and walls ensure that the lavish courtyard becomes an extension of the living spaces inside.
Combining warm natural hues with sleek modern design seems like a luxurious yet organic extension of the scenery that surrounds it. Incorporating several contrasting elements the striking rectangular silhouette of the house is comprised of various square boxes that seemingly borrow from the classic bush lodge design.
While it resembles one of those lavish retreats from the outside the Naked House is all about stripping away unnecessary frills and ‘over the top’ opulence. After spending years around some of the most luxurious homes and five-star getaways in the region Gerritsen wanted to move away from this modern trend.
The impressive residence welcomes you with an airy living space that opens up into the lush green courtyard. Large glass walls and doors connect this area with the expansive courtyard that also features a refreshing pool. Offering unabated views of the city lights in the distance this dreamy spot is filled with comfy decor along with twin Barcelona chairs that steal the show. A delicate balance between wood stone and glass and a beautiful mezzanine level capture your attention instantly.
From a distance the ingenious roof reminds us of Japanese origami creations and transforms the otherwise simple nature retreat into a dramatic eye-catching structure that is set against an equally awe-inspiring tropical countryside.
