How would you like to live in this sleek condominium building in Soho?

{Urban Glass House Condos}

A twelve story mid-rise building designed by the late architect, Philip Johnson, the Urban Glass House was the last project before Philip’s death.  It gets its name from his famous 1949 glass-enclosed home in Connecticut.

I remember watching a very lonnng movie in design school about the Glass House.  Interesting, but quite long!

{The Glass House}

Currently fashion designer, Jill Stuart is living in a “glass house” of her own.  Her and her husband reside in the sleek Urban Glass House condos in Manhattan.  Talk about lucky!  I can only imagine the amazing view from her window (which apparently, according to Jill, she gets a nice view from her bathtub of boats and the Statue of Liberty!)

Her modern penthouse was featured in this month’s Elle Decor and looks nothing like what you would imagine.  It is much more calming and simplified than some of her designs- but who can blame her?  After a long hard day of dealing with printed fabrics, there’s no wonder a designer likes to come home to a serene, clean lined space.  Just look at stylist, Rachel Zoe’s home!  It’s hard to believe that such a simplistic residence belongs to such an uber accessorized, and flashy fashionista!

Jill’s home was designed by Selldorf Architects and houses six bedrooms and five bathrooms.  This open and airy space is definitely minimalism at its best.

Normally I tend to gravitate towards more colorful and busy spaces, but I just couldn’t resist with this one!

And here’s a glimpse into Jill Stuart’s runway show at the NY public library during fashion week.  Her Spring/Summer 2010 collection included a futuristic collection that had a strong 80′s vibe- so fun!
