Day 3 of Design Walk 2012 focused on the west village, which included a tour of 632 on Hudson, a unique property available for photo shoots and all sorts of parties. This space is absolutely amazing, with a variety of opportunities to throw a memorable event. There are 5 levels to choose from, starting from a speakeasy below ground, a street-level gallery with doors that open onto Hudson Street, and an astonishing three floors above, boasting a 40-foot atrium leading to a wraparound roof deck. What’s exceptional about the space is that the facade is totally unassuming. The surprise hits on level 3, and the excitement builds as you tour each room, taking in the fanciful design—bohemian, cluttered—in themes of Indian, Asian, French, Deco—full of antiques acquired from a lifetime of travels. Bathrooms feature old-style tubs with authentic vintage hardware and accessories. See more details on the history (it was a sausage factory) on the website. I took tons of photos, which do not totally tell the story, it must be seen in person to fully appreciate. See the photos at this link.
