If you were impressed with the YMCA converted home, this gymnasium apartment in New York City will most definitely pique your interest. Constructed from the former gymnasium of the original 1905 Beaux Arts Police Headquarters, this Soho, New York City based building was designed by architect Charles Gwathmey.
The concept behind the space was to, “physically maintain and visually exploit the volumetric integrity and structural expression of the existing barrel vaulted space, while adding a master bedroom suite and study/library balcony, and integrating an eclectic painting and sculpture collection.”
The apartment is quite large spanning 6,600 square feet with 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms, making it the perfect single family residence. The home was dropped to $14.5 million after first hitting the market for twice that at $30 million.
