Metal Shutter House duplex goes viral after its architect wins Pritzker Prize

A $7 million three-bedroom condominium inside West Chelsea’s Metal Shutter Houses has been on the market since 2012, but now it’s attracting unprecedented attention. According to this story in The New York Times, the public’s interest piqued in the condo after the duplex’s architect, Shigeru Ban, received the Pritzker Prize in March. The condo is characterized by curved rather than angled cabinets and countertops, 20-foot ceilings and — most notable of all — street-facing balconies that can be accessed by floor-to-ceiling windows that open like a garage door. Though calls for tours of Ban’s masterpiece are rejected, the architecturally curious can check it out here.
