Steps away from Central Park, this 61st-floor apartment balances sweeping city views with modern interiors by Jeffrey Beers International. The warm and inviting home includes a carefully curated selection of artwork by several Uprise Art artists, from a 22k gold site-specific installation by Christina Watka in the Grand Living Room, to a pair of paintings referencing letter-writing by Gail Tarantino above the desk in the bedroom. Tour the home at One57 below.

“As you walk through the rooms, we created moments of reveal as you turn a corner and breathtaking awe as you enter the Grand Living Room.”
“In the Grand Dining Room, we placed two large paintings on raw muslin by Vicki Sher. Her works often reference objects that are symbols of the home, such as a chandelier, fruit bowl, or vase.”
“This home is unlike anything I’ve ever seen, with 360-degree views of New York City, including a stunning view of Central Park from the Grand Living Room.”
“For the study, we placed a work by Josie Stevenson. She collages together pieces of her own paintings to create something new.”
“Evan Venegas’ watercolor paintings are inspired by the idea of organizing your life and 'emotional data into overlapping circles. In the bedroom, these works are the first thing you see when you wake up, and the last thing you see when you go to bed, so the concept of helping set priorities and make sense of the world was a particularly powerful one in this setting.”
“Erin Lynn Welsh incorporated sand into the oil paint so the surface of the work is highly textured. The combination of the rich thick paint, sleek metallic frame, and balance of warm and cool tones really changes the way the bedroom feels.The painting is an abstract landscape based on Joshua Tree, so it serves as a window of sorts, offering an alternate view than the one outside.”
