The Greenwich Hotel TriBeCa Penthouse by Axel Vervoordt + Tatsuro Miki

The TriBeCa Penthouse

A sanctuary high above the corner ofGreenwich Street and North Moore Street.

We want to express a tribeca character in the most humble way, because the architecture is so simple, it belongs as much to the past as to the future,” says designer Axel Vervoordt.

tribeca-bed21-1600x995The TriBeCa Penthouse was created by Belgian designer Axel Vervoordt and Japanese architect Tatsuro Miki, in close collaboration with the hotel’s partners Ira Drukier and Robert De Niro. The 6,800 sq ft suite was inspired by the TriBeCa neighborhood’s industrial past fused with the ancient Japanese aesthetic of Wabi.

This adage – which translates roughly as finding happiness through creating happiness – is Axel Vervoordt’s favourite.

It expresses our commitment to inspire artists and audiences through discovering and transmitting the beautiful, with a deep respect for everything that is authentic.
