What makes this terrace so unique is the seamless way in which the many factors that make terraces special were brought together. To start, 15 Mercer Street is taller than its neighbors, so views are spectacular. The best spot to enjoy the view is hot-tub, which is strategically place to have unobstructed views, while being completely shielded from wind gusts. If you get tired of looking at the city, you can always turn on the large outdoor tv. Besides that, the vegetation is curated to create intimacy and protection where needed AND to direct your gaze into the direction with the most open views. This terrace simply has every desirable amenity, covered summer kitchen, hot tub, outdoor tv, speakers throughout, outdoor shower, and seating room for large dinner parties. But the most practical feature might well be the abundance of storage spaces, hidden behind the architectural detailing.
As a matter of fact, the attention to detail, and unique ways to make crucial storage space an integral part of the overall design, is part of the architectural genius throughout this super-sized loft. Immediately upon exiting the key-locked elevator, one only has to look closely at the privacy door to recognize that genius. (come and see for yourself).
All the architectural details in this 3100sf loft are meant to maximize the sense of space by minimizing the visual disturbances of storage and practicality. What makes these details really "pop" is that they made a super voluminous open floor plan loft with 11ft ceilings super practical and cozy.
The result is unique; 40' wide floor-through lofts are rare to begin with, finding one in which you can see the both the front and back windows from almost every spot is rarer still, having that in a space with 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, full laundry, and a true chefs kitchen make it unique.
The effect of this unique design is that the living room can feel 3000sf large with 9 oversized windows yet it is very comfortable and even intimate with its wood burning fireplace and bar. Similarly, the master and the guest room/study are each comfortably sized and can be cozy, but with the sliding doors open they can be made to feel 3000sf large with 9 windows.
The strategic use of sliding doors also allows you to transfer the practical en-suite master bathroom into a tremendous spa experience.
All of this can be found in a small condo building on one of the quieter streets in the heart of SoHo where the block has not yet become an open-air version of the Mall of the Americas.
