Michael S. Smith's Manhattan, NY, Penthouse
from Architectural Digest
Some people employ a broker to find their dream apartment, others search the Internet. But Los Angeles–based designer Michael S. Smith discovered his Manhattan pied-à-terre — a duplex penthouse off Madison Avenue — by looking out a window. He was working nearby and noticed a terrace of elegant proportions that skirted the top floors of a prewar building. "It had such a beautiful perspective," he says of the apartment. "City views that unfold gently, on four sides, with townhouse rooftops in the foreground and glass towers in the distance."
