  • Greenwich Village has an extraordinarily rich history. It was the original home of the Whitney Museum and the Beat Generation.
  • Postwar painters like Jackson Pollock and Mark Rothko drank and argued about art at the legendary Cedar Tavern. In addition to a vibrant art scene, the Bitter End nightclub offered a stage to singers from Bob Dylan and Joni Mitchell to Patti Smith, jazz musicians like Bill Evans and Stan Getz, and comedians like Lenny Bruce and Woody Allen. The Village’s renowned traditions of architecture and landscape—including townhouses like the one that was home to Mark Twain, mews buildings like the former stables-turned-artists’ studios that line MacDougal Alley, and the changing seasons as reflected in Washington Square Park—adds a richness to the texture of everyday life.

Throughout the residences, Selldorf’s elegant minimalism is evident, with finely modulated elements, precision, and clear geometry combined to perfection. At the building’s base, a two-story podium — distinctively detailed with metal, granite, and a backlit transom of inlaid glass —brings a sophisticated jewel box quality to University Place and integrates a series of shop fronts with the streetscape. The lush landscaping of the podium enriches the living experience of the residences and infuses the area with greenery, continuing the foliage and parks so integral to the neighborhood.

As the designer of both the architecture and interiors, Selldorf was able to create especially gracious residences. The firm’s emphasis on comfort and usability is reflected in thoughtfully sequenced layouts and meticulous detail that define livable luxury.
