Last week we wrote about Paul Rudolph’s experimental Walker Guest House hitting the market in Florida. But over in New York, another of his iconic designs is about to go on sale – his Beekman Place Townhouse.

Rudolph lived at 23 Beekman Place in Manhattan from 1961 until his death in 1997. It’s undergone a few changes since then (including the removal of a suspended Lucite bathtub which had looked on to the kitchen), but its soaring industrial spaces are intact.

The modernist property has been on the market a few times in recent years and is much reduced from its original 2012 asking price of $27.5m. Beekman Townhouse is soon to be listed with Sotheby’s International Realty for $18.5m, which covers the entire building including the quadriplex penthouse and lower units.

The Paul Rudolph Heritage Foundation (PRHF) describes the New York property as ‘an orchestration of interlocking spaces’, and a design lab where the architect experimented with textures and materials. Ray Eames, Philip Johnson and Frank Gehry all visited the townhouse, which served as a backdrop for Rudolph’s parties.

The listing is yet to be published but more can be found out by emailing the PRHF: office@paulrudolphheritagefoundation.org
