Dezeen Magazine offered a peek at the amenity spaces available to residents moving into Herzog & de Meuron’s newest skyscraper in Tribeca, New York. The reading room features Sergio Rodrigues’ “Diz” armchair.

The private facilities, also designed by the Swiss architects, span 17,000 square feet (1,5880 square meters) across the ninth and 10th floors of the 60-storey building at 56 Leonard Street.

Work on the skyscraper completed earlier this year. Its stacked form, which houses 145 residences, has resulted in comparisons to wooden block game Jenga.

The tower is topped with 10 penthouses, while one corner of the ground level appears to be supported by a bulbous mirrored sculpture by artist Anish Kapoor.
