Dutch and Scandinavian design is having a moment in New York City, which might have a little something to do with the major success of the Piet Boon office-to-condo conversion Huys (pronounced "house") at 404 Park Avenue South. The building's 58 apartments are well on their way to being sold out, with only its $6.75 million Penthouse B still up for grabsanother unit on the market in the building is a resale. Being that they're ohsoclose, the forces behind Huys sure do want to lasso in that last buyer and have sent over a few new looks into the penthouse, as well as a first peek (and we're suckers for first peeks) at the building's shared rooftop garden that's designed by Piet Boon in collaboration with High Line landscape architect Piet Oudolf and Kroonenberg Groep.
Both the rooftop and penthouse are sparse in that
Spartan Dutch and Scandanavian kind of way. The 2,929-square-foot rooftop is planted with perennials and grasses that will change with the seasons, and includes Piet Boon-designed furniture.
For a building that sold so quickly, it seems bonkers that Penthouse B has been on the market for all of 670 days, according to StreetEasy. The three-bedroom, three-and-a-half bathroom penthouse covers 2,426 square feet and also comes with private outdoor space. New looks in, below.
