Groundbreaking. Emulated. Iconic. Legendary.These words describe not only the spectacular architecture of 101 East 63rd Street, but the figures associated with it: Paul Rudolph, Halston, Gianni Agnelli and Gunter Sachs. Now, for the first time in generations, this unadulterated gem of architectural history and heirloom of 20th century New York’s golden age of art and culture is available for purchase. Rudolph had already served as Dean of the Yale School of Architecture and achieved international acclaim when he built the house in 1966. His clients wanted an urban retreat, and thus, Rudolph constructed a facade of steel and glass which purposefully demurs to its more traditional neighbors. Step inside, however, and the space comes to life, surprising and delighting guests with its unconventional use of space and light. An understated slate entry hall explodes into the vast expanse of a living room with 32′ ceilings and skylights. A double-height master suite, bamboo garden and floating staircase delight. On the top floor an additional living room, kitchen and 2nd master suite are complemented by a 1,600 s/f terrace. A garage provides the ultimate in privacy and security. All told, there are 4 bedrooms, 3 living rooms, a dining room, study, 2 kitchens, terrace and solarium. As Rudolph intended when he completed this as his only complete residential townhouse in Manhattan, and as Halston, Agnelli and Sachs all agreed, this home is truly without equal.

101 East 63rd Street – HALSTON’s Town House

In 1974 Halston bought the Hirsch/Turner townhouse at 101 East 63 Street. Designed by architect Paul Rudolphthe project was completed in 1968 for his clients Alexander Hirsch (a real-estate lawyer) and his partner, Lewis Turner. The two men lived in the house for 6 and a half years (1968-1974). Halston lived at “101” (the knick-name he gave the house) for 15 years (1974-1989). During his glory days “101” became one of the most iconic houses of the 70s decadent-disco-glamour era. Strangely enough “101” was shot only a few times for publications (the most prominent were: LIFE Magazine by Harry Benson in 1978, House Beautiful in 1977 and images by Hiro for the New York Times accompanying Paul Goldberg‘s story in 1977 – Halston’s Hideaway). It has always driven me crazy that no one has complied a comprehensive collection of images – you always see two or three images here and there – the house like it’s owner always covered in a sea of mystery and illusiveness. All the images shown here were taken inside “101” during the time Halston owned the townhouse.

The exterior – still pretty much the same as it was when completed in 1968. Left: shows placement of rooms during Halston’s era.
“A world of its own, inward looking and secretive is created in a relatively small volume of space in the middle of New York City. Varying intensities of light are juxtaposed and related to structures within structures. Simple materials (plaster, paint) are used, but the feeling is of great luxuriousness because of the space. The one exposed façade reveals the interior arrangement of volumes by offsetting each floor and room in plan and section.”
