Pritzker Prize-winner Renzo Piano is an architect whose forte is city-defining monuments. He gave Paris the Centre Pompidou, London the Shard and, in 2015, New York the born-again Whitney Museum of American Art. His contribution to domesticity has always been more limited, but fortunate fans of the Italian maestro will now be able to consider 565 Broome SoHo (www.565broomesoho.com), a curvaceous 30-storey glass tower overlooking the corner of Manhattan’s Hudson Square and SoHo. With wide-stretching views across the Hudson River and the rooftops of SoHo and Tribeca, six (from $13.5m) of the 115 apartments are also accompanied by that latest Big Apple accessory – a private saltwater pool. Plus, for those who prefer to leave their home to make a splash, there’s a spa, with its own 17m pool, a wet bar and a library.
