The West Side Pyramid in Manhattan is actually an apartments building.

As an architect I always felt attracted to shapes and modern buildings so it´s my pleasure to introduce you to the fabulous world of the most exclusive and awesome pyramid shape buildings around the world!

Oh! Wait a minute! So you thought Pyramids exist only in Egypt?

Nooo way!! After you read this article you´ll be so impressed about men´s power to create you will definitely want to visit or, why not, live in this huge edifications and feel like a real Pharaoh! So let´s start choosing some of my favorites and…OMG just take a look at this one! By far my favorite!

1. The Great Pyramid of Manhattan (or West side pyramid)- absolutely marvelous

I wonder why you never thought about finding a huge Pyramid in West Side  the middle of the Big Apple? Decades ago that would be nearly impossible, but…NYC always surprises us and makes everything possible!

Located in VIA 57West and a creation of the most talented architects worldwide , Bjarke Ingels, is this fabulous Pyramid Shape building that rises 467ft and is 35 stories tall!. Its artist (cause to me architects are also superb artists) prefer to call this building a Tetrahedron, although everyone knows it as a pyramid and the best of all you don´t need to be a Pharaoh to lay inside this “Pyramid”

TBH yes, average rent here´s still high but come on! Make your best effort and enjoy your stay, as studio apartments are yet affordable!

2.The Louvre Pyramid-to me one of the seven wonders of the world!

This is probably the most popular Pyramid known worldwide. There´s no doubt timeless Geometry is here to stay and that many architects had focused on creating this kind of buildings with pyramid shapes.

The Louvre Pyramid, located in Paris, is not only visited by millions of tourists around the world, but hides a treasure of the most famous paintings of renowned artists of all times. Ok I´m sounding kind of formal here, I´m taking out the architect in me!  Although no one is YET living at this building, maybe you get lucky and rent a room! Of course, only if you are a celebrity 😀

3. The Pyramid house- Get ready to turn heads!

This is undoubtedly one of my favorites! Love watching this picture of a house with pyramid shape! Isn´t it awesome? I find it so original, I´m planning to move to a place like this one! (not that I can afford it, but ok, that´s another problem)

This unique house was build my Mexican architect Juan Carlos Ramos and it’s a comfy three story home with two bedrooms, library, studio, bathroom with pool and all the etc´s possible! Ready to move in?? Okkk don´t forget about me! DAE?

4. Luxur Hotel-“What happens in Vegas…stays in Vegas”

Life doesn´t stop surprising me and that´s so cool! Just look at this pyramid-shape Hotel build. Nothing more and nothing less than in sin city!

This 30-story hotel owned and operated by MGM Resorts International is the best place EVER, to have fun!
Wouldn´t you love to spend at least, just ONE night here? Oh come on! This place is absolutely fabulous!! Invite your friends in and don´t worry babe! What happens in Vegas…stays in Vegas!! Yeah!!

Hope you had fun and at the same time got informed after reading my wonderful articles, ha! Remember I´m an architect and I´m here to serve you so… if you have any questions…AMA!!

New York City Dream Apartments and Buildings: Courtney House NY

Dream apartment picture
NYC apartments that are some form of dream.

When I first arrived to NYC I haven’t had the slightest idea which place I could stay at. I knew I couldn’t afford a luxury hotel but at the same time I do want to find a nice, familiar place to spend the rest of my days at this amazing city. For the first week my friend, Carla, offered me to stay at her beautiful apartment to which I agree very happily, not until she told me she owed a cat…and I´m allergic to cats!

Oh my God…how stressful it was. My best friend was offering me with all her heart that beautiful place to stay at and I was afraid a massive allergic reaction would take me straight away to the hospital! Fortunately, nothing of that happened but…just in case… after a few days I started looking for another place to spend my stay.

Carla recommend for me to stay at Courtney House, she told me it was a beautiful place where I would feel really comfortable and enjoy its incredible services.
I went to visit this place and what I saw really amazed me, that same day I made my reservation and moved to Courtney House. (official website is here http://www.courtneyhouseny.com/ in case you want to check it out)

I´m going to name you 5 things I really loved from this place and that made my stay unforgettable:

1. Excellent service-staff at your disposal!

Nice, helpful people will surround you all the time, asking you weather if you need something or what can they do to make your stay pleasant. At Courtney House you will find a very familiar place to stay, it´s cozy and comfortable, so don´t doubt to choose this place when travelling to NYC.

 

2. Excellent location-Live in the middle of it all!

If you stay at Courtney House distances will be no stress to you at all as you will be living in the middle of it all! Imagine having the chance to access WALKING to different shops, fancy restaurants and malls, isn´t it great??? So take the chance!

 

3. Parking garage-Keep your car safe and sound!

One of the most common problems in a big City like New York is that it´s very hard to find a place to park your car and if you do you´ll probably get a traffic ticket, that, believe me, you won´t be able to afford.

At Courtney House your beloved car will sleep inside and you will relax knowing you can sleep without having nightmares of monstrous traffic tickets!

 

4. 24 hour concierge-That will be your sentinel!

Feeling safe and knowing you can count on someone if anything unplanned happens or if you are not feeling very well is awesome!! At Courtney House you will be able to count 24/7 with its Concierge, a very kind and helpful man who will always try to work things out for you the best as possible!!

 

5. Great value for money! – Pay less get more.

Why pay more if you can stay at a wonderful place with the services of a 5 star hotel, paying less! Courtney House is very accessible and yet it will offer you their best service ever. So come on! stop wasting your money and stay at this beautiful and friendly unique Hotel one of the best NYC buildings. You will love it!

 

So here is my humble opinion about Courtney House and hope after reading this article you make your mind and decide to stay at this wonderful place.
