Offering a modern take on Rosario Candela’s gracious “mansions in the clouds,” The Lucida views the luxury apartment through a lens of health and well-being. The project explores light and air as essential elements for the indoor environment, whose purity defines a new standard for urban living. Skinned in floor-to-ceiling glass chosen for its extreme clarity, it is triple-laminated for acoustic insulation and patterned with ceramic “frit” to improve energy performance and balance daylight while providing connection to the outdoors. Strategies including 90% filtered fresh air, planted terraces, and recycled materials enabled The Lucida to become the first residence on the Upper East Side to achieve LEED certification.
