A marriage of old and new, this unique triangular development illustrates how a modern building can be created within a historic district. Situated in Tribeca, 100 Franklin Street features a striking hand-laid brick façade comprised of handmade bricks by Denmark’s Petersen Tegl, classically-inspired masonry detailing, and integrated plantings and landscaping. Designed and developed by DDG (the firm behind The Standish in Brooklyn Heights), 100 Franklin is the company’s most complex project to date.it is comprised of two newly constructed triangular buildings uniquely joined together to create 10 expansive homes, which are the direct result of the unusual design.

100 Franklin Street features 10 private full-floor homes – including two duplex penthouses with expansive rooftop terraces – that utilize the buildings’ unique architecture through open and airy floor-through layouts accessed via direct elevator entry. Like other DDG projects, a strong connection to the arts is prevalent. The site was home to the recent large-scale mural by acclaimed international street artist J.R., and DDG has commissioned Paris-based artist and designer Charlotte Taylor to create new pieces that will be permanently installed within 100 Franklin Street.

The model residence presented by The Future Perfect was designed to invoke a spirit of graceful living by showcasing the beauty of architecture through works that are uniquely aligned to the vision for the space. Select pieces from The Future Perfect’s collectibles collection, including a coffee table by Chris Wolston and lighting fixtures by Charles De Lisle, set the tone. Portuguese luxury firm De La Espada’s furniture is featured throughout and includes many objects from their roster of talented artists, such as Neri & Hu, Matthew Hilton, Luca Nichetto, Studioilse, and Jason Miller. The Swedish textile brand Kasthall provided the woven, hand-tufted, and one-of-a-kind rugs.
