Key Features

In keeping with the distinctive lantern-like bay windows in Lantern House’s exquisite facade, the three-bedroom, three-bathroom Residence 1904, with ceiling heights of up to 10’9,” is radiant with natural light and beautiful features, such as the five-inch wide-plank French oak flooring and an extraordinary light fixture made of bronze-finished metal and specialty glass. The master bedroom, which is set off from the rest of the home for ultimate privacy, is a true sanctuary with a spacious dressing area and ensuite bathroom with flooring and walls of Nestos Beige marble slab, polished Emperador Grey marble countertops, a custom vanity, elegant glass wall sconces, and fluted mirror panels. The ensuite bathroom merges comfort and elegance via polished marble wet walls with custom vanities, oak cabinetry, and Cristallo Pearl marble flooring and counters, while the powder room has honed Black Onyx floors and polished Black Onyx slab walls. As part of an open-plan design, the curved and oversized great room leads to a custom-crafted kitchen by March & White that features Calacatta Venato marble slab backsplash and countertops and Gaggenau appliances, including a wine refrigerator. A lovely foyer and convenient washer and dryer set are just a few of the final brushstrokes on this glamorous home.

Thomas Heatherwick of London-based Heatherwick Studio is known for his dramatic, forward-thinking aesthetic. And Lantern House is no exception. The condominium development is actually two towers, rising on either side of the High Line, connected below the elevated greenway by a metal-roofed glass-encased lobby and surrounded by lush gardens by Hollander Design Landscape Architects. It’s undoubtedly an architectural statement, but it was built with residents in mind: “The design for Lantern House came from looking at the city’s existing buildings and thinking about which ones you might want to live in, not just look at,” says Heatherwick. The bay windows, inspired by those you’d see on Victorian homes in the United Kingdom, invite city and water views, and the brickwork punctuating the facade reflects New York’s industrial beginnings. As the studio’s first residential project in New York, the silhouette looks every bit as sculptural and unique as the rest of Heatherwick’s repertoire. 

Related Companies tapped another London-based studio for the interior design: March & White, founded by Elliot March and James White, got its start designing interiors for luxury yachts and some of London’s most exclusive private clubs. At Lantern House, they’ve gone after a classic, tailored look that speaks to their background. “The holistic design connects a distinctive facade with a heritage interior,” says March. The 181 loft-like residences, which range in size from one bedroom to four bedrooms, have bronze fixtures, fluted-walnut cabinetry, marble and onyx surfaces, and oak wood flooring, plus Gaggenau kitchens and radiant-heat flooring in the master bathrooms.

Lantern House’s location on (or rather around) the High Line provides inspiration for its amenities. The 75-foot saline swimming pool runs parallel to the High Line, while gardens below and on the rooftop echo the greenery of the elevated park. Cozier enclaves within the building include the library, game room, and coworking lounge.
