Take advantage of the ombre summer evenings and cooler nights with your loggia in the sky. Loggia, which is Italian for "lodge" can often be seen in museums, palaces, and other historic grandeur structures in Italy and Greece. In New York, the renaissance of loggias has officially begun, and we can't get enough of them this summer. Here are four loggias in luxury New York residences made for summer entertaining.
130 William Street
130 William's hand-cast concrete facade is a striking addition to the Manhattan skyline, especially the reinvented arches inspired by classic Lower Manhattan architecture. The top ten residential floors are home to the Penthouse and Loggia Residences, which offer expansive outdoor spaces with unprecedented views, including the Brooklyn Bridge, Manhattan Bridge, East River and more. The loggia terraces wrap the residences from end to end, providing an expansive outdoor space over 600 feet in the air.
Parlour is a twelve-story boutique condominium in Park Slope, with nineteen expansive full and half-floor residences. The iconic brick facade and arched windows are a modernist reinterpretation of the historic area. Each residence features at least one private loggia that overlooks downtown Manhattan and offers an open floor plan.
Eighty East Tenth Street
This development in the East Village brings contemporary condos to the neighborhood with its metal impression facade, curve patterns, and floor-to-ceiling windows. At Eighty East Tenth Street, each full-floor residence offers a grand outdoor respite that is connected to the great room or master suite, perfect for outdoor entertaining or relaxing on a lazy Sunday afternoon.
Designed by INC Architecture and Design, Vandewater stretches boldly to the sky, offering stunning views of Manhattan from Morningside Heights. Along with a state-of-the-art wellness center and 24,000 square feet of programmed indoor and outdoor amenities, Vandewater offers its residences a loggia fitted with plush seating surrounded by luscious plants and trees.
