Incomparable. Groundbreaking. Emulated. Iconic. Legendary. These words describe not only the spectacular architecture of 101 East 63rd Street, but the figures associated with it: Paul Rudolph, Halston, Gianni Agnelli and Gunter Sachs. Now, for the first time in generations, this unadulterated gem of architectural history and heirloom of 20th century New York’s golden age of art and culture is available for purchase. Rudolph had already served as Dean of the Yale School of Architecture and achieved international acclaim when he built the house in 1966. His clients wanted an “urban retreat,” and thus, Rudolph constructed a facade of steel and glass which purposefully demurs to its more traditional neighbors. Step inside, however, and the space comes to life, surprising and delighting guests with its unconventional use of space and light.
