Michael Kors: New York Penthouse Tour – Video
In this episode of Open Door, iconic fashion designer Michael Kors takes Architectural Digest on a tour of the Greenwich Village apartment he co-owns with husband Lance LePere. The NYC apartment has been fully customized, right down to the hidden sliding doors that allow it to transform from an open, loft-like space to a completely closed-off apartment. What’s more, it’s surrounded by a lush terrace with unobstructed views south to the World Trade Center, west to the Hudson River, and beyond in all directions.
Luxury Apartment in Downtown, New York
The penthouse is the top floor of the building and is located with the approximately 500 square meters on the roof of the entire house. For Michael Kors taste comes only extra selected things in his four walls. Whether it is a table made of special wood, a handmade vase or a woven basket. His motto, minimalist with different highlights fit the room and their effect. Above all, it is noticeable that a lot of attention was paid to different materials and photography in the design of the apartment. All hallways are decorated with numerous pictures that have emotional as well as material value.
The untouched kitchen
After passing through a small entrance area, you enter the kitchen through a small narrow hallway. The kitchen is overall very simple and clean. The brown-beige kitchen fronts create a pleasant and harmonious color scheme with the white matte countertops. The upper cabinets have light strips mounted from below, which cast soft pleasant light on the worktops, as well as the back wall. The sink and faucet is in a light metal and blends in with the kitchen’s coffee maker. The eye-catchers in this case are a large flowering orchid in a glass vase and a black handmade bowl standing next to it. For a suitably simple and minimalist lighting, short narrow black fluorescent tubes were attached sporadically.

Extras of the apartment
In a property like this, of course, nothing should be standard. Accordingly, the rooms must also make room for the one or other pompous extra. Whether it’s a study, a gym or a huge terrace with a view of the Manhattan skyline.
Study: Where new ideas are born
A large round lamp folded from paper hangs in the middle of the table from the ceiling and provides a soft and pleasant light even in the evening hours. On the left wall of the office, a brown and white wooden cabinet can store everything you need. The shelf is decorated with two wooden vases of different sizes, which are located on the right side. Above the cabinet, there is a television set, which also provides a distraction or two while working. From here you also have the possibility to enter the 75 square meter roof terrace.
Fitness room: stay fit at home
In a more than 15 million euros expensive penthouse, of course, the own gym can not be missing. Thanks to a free room, Michael Kors and his husband have brought their own little gym home. Even though the two of them have many differences, they all agree on sports, health and appearance. With togetherness and such a great view of the rooftops of New York, you are still motivated to do sports no matter what time.
Terrace for a piece of nature
The terrace includes on the large of 75 square meters, everything you need as an entrepreneur and designer in a New York penthouse. A BBQ grill, a lounge corner, and a dining table for up to 10 people. That and another huge selection of different plants, spices and flowers makes Michael feel like he’s in the country, or at least in a park. Even though construction noise and city sounds can be heard here at almost any time, you get used to the noises very quickly and a view of the World Trade Center and many other centrally located buildings soon makes up for it.
