Considered as one of New York’s greatest Art Deco residential buildings, the Ardsley was designed by Emery Roth and Sons, which is a popular name in terms of architectural design in the Central Park West area. The design of the building is very striking and very elaborate. It is made up of contrasting buff and black brick colors that create a geometric pattern in the upper levels of the building. The black brick also goes well with the streetscape. The apartments units in the building are relatively small but there are also duplexes and triplexes that cater to the needs of bigger families. These larger rooms have circular staircases, terraces, and ceilings that are 15 feet high to create a spacious look. There are also libraries and servants’ quarters included. In 2010, the lobby of the building has just been renovated by designer Scott Salvator to restore the Art Deco interior’s former glory.
