Tribeca's 'Cast Iron House' comes to life with its revived Victorian interiors.

Cast Iron House contains 11 duplex apartments and two penthouse suites. Designed by the Japanese architect, Shigeru Ban, the first images of the highly anticipated restoration have been unveiled. When reconceptualizing Cast Iron House, Ban worked to blend the historically important components of the building with a timeless, minimalistic design. Ban described the revived Victorian building as, "a ship in a bottle."

The interior of the building is light and lofty due to the incredible windows that line its exterior. To contrast the detailed facade of the building and provide some weight to the space, geometric lines are used on the furnishings. A more modern approach adds interest and a timeless nature to the space.
