Alexander Hirsch Residence, Upper East Side, NYC

This lesser-known Paul Rudolph work doesn’t have the Brutalist heft of many of his signature works, but recedes into the streetscape due to its low height, black metal framing and dark tinted glass expanses. It was constructed in 1970 for Alexander Hirsch and Lewis Turner but may be better known as the residence of Halston, the 70s fashion designer. It was on the market in 2011 after its most recent owner Gunter Sachs died. It originally replaced a carriage house built for Edward Berwind, a Guilded-Age industrialist.
