Window To Luxury

05.11.21

First used hundreds of years ago during the height of the Roman empire, arched windows were originally utilized for their stability as buildings began growing taller and grander. Today, the arched window has become a status symbol for condo developments, seen on some of the most luxurious residential buildings throughout the US.

Providing a striking architectural moment from inside and out, arched windows are a unique addition that instantly elevates a home's grandeur and character. Abode2 showcases a selection of residential developments featuring beautiful arched windows, including some the US's best examples.

555 West End Avenue

Nestled in the heart of Manhattan's Upper West Side neighbourhood, 555 West End Avenue offers 13 breath taking, one-of-a-kind residences with unmatched architectural magnificence from the building's origin as a historic Beaux Arts private school built in 1908. The unique homes are incredibly spacious, with 12.5- to 20-foot ceilings, private elevator landings, gracious entry foyers and voluminous eat-in, chef's kitchens. Select residences, including The Library, Solarium Penthouse and Terrace Penthouse feature original towering arched windows that bathe the homes in abundant natural light and frame picturesque views of the tree-lined streets below. Only five homes remain and immediate occupancy is available.

The Archer Residences

Converted from a building that's nearly a century old, The Archer Residences is the first full-service, white-glove condominium development in historic Beacon Hill, one of Boston's oldest and most exclusive neighbourhoods. The building's red brick façade reflects the historic nature of the neighbourhood, while inside, classic design meets modern finishes. Select homes feature breath taking oversized arched windows that illustrate the balance between historic and contemporary design, while simultaneously bringing in exceptional natural light and picture-perfect Beacon Hill views. Additional notable features in the residences include custom walnut and painted oak cabinetry, Wolf and Sub-Zero appliances, copper Waterworks fixtures, freestanding bathtubs, 5” rift oak flooring and crown moulding.

200 East 83rd Street

200 East 83rd, the new Upper East Side residential tower by Robert A.M. Stern Architects with interiors by Rottet Studio, is a celebration of the neighbourhood’s architectural romance. Drawing inspiration from the grand structures along Park, Fifth and Madison Avenues and the historic clubs and cultural institutions that have shaped the Upper East Side, Stern and his partners synthesized a unique design language for the Modern Classical building. One resulting component is arched windows, found within 200 East 83rd’s monumental indoor/outdoor amenities spaces and select Penthouse residences. RAMSA’s unique decision to lift the seventy-foot pool, health club and entertainment spaces to the middle of the tower is boldly expressed on the building’s façade and complemented by Rottet Studio’s gracious amenity interiors. Each featuring a vaulted ceiling, double-height loggia with floor-to-ceiling arched windows and French doors, the 17th-floor pool room and Winter Garden create visual drama while inviting the outdoors in and allowing for natural light, fresh air and incredible New York City skyline and Central Park views. Residents can overlook both spaces from inside the state-of-the-art fitness centre and yoga studio, which also boast arched windows. Lining a portion of the custom wood- and leather-panelled library on the ground floor are arched windows with French doors leading to a serene landscaped garden. At the building’s crown, three dramatic penthouse residences feature double-height ceilings for a sublime living experience and a luxurious materiality frames both the indoor and outdoor spaces.

Beckford House & Tower

William Sofield has created gorgeous interiors for Tom Ford and Gucci stores all over the world, posh homes for the rich and the fabulous, and truly towering mega-luxury skyscrapers that attract the globe’s most elite circles. His sophisticated style has not only earned him a GQ cameo and an AD100 title, but also the admiration of fashion’s most esteemed players, like Ralph and Ricky Lauren and Mary Kate Olsen. And after decades in the business, William's most ambitious vision for glamorous living has finally culminated with Beckford House & Tower, an Upper East Side project that just might be William’s largest to-date, with not one, but two prewar-inspired buildings he’s designed inside and out. Beckford House & Tower feature a nouveau classic facade that doesn’t stop at stone and brick. Sofield pushed the envelope with a series of Juliet balconies, intricate ironwork, expansive private setback terraces and dramatic arched windows that would give each building character. In designing the facade, he wanted to create subtle focal points that future inhabitants could see from the street, and use as a map in finding their home or bedroom window. He pictured young kids being able to see and point to their bedrooms via their arched window, for example, a quirky benefit of a detailed facade in New York City.
