Shigeru Ban’s Cast Iron House unveils its austere model apartment

New, 3 comments

The Pritzker winner’s second NYC project has been on the market since 2014

The bespoke condos of Shigeru Ban’s Cast Iron House have been on the market since 2014, but only now are photos of the development’s quiet yet stunning model apartment surfacing. The Pritzker Prize winner’s second New York City project following West Chelsea’s Metal Shutter Houses, Cast Iron House encompasses 13 apartments that each feature a double-height living area and custom-designed details created by Ban specifically for the project like cabinetry, door pulls, and sinks.

The model apartment, 6A, covers 4,250 square feet and is available for $10.55 million. It’s one of five apartments in the building that are still up for grabs at Cast Iron House, including its two penthouses with telescoping glass walls that retract for indoor/outdoor living.

One of the most charming aspects of the development is its namesake cast iron, whose detailed columns are viewable from inside the apartments. The building shares its facade material with developer Knightsbridge Properties other notable NYC property Obsidian House, the city’s second-oldest cast iron building. Like Cast Iron House, Obsidian House also hosts a rather modern, surprising penthouse.
