The Recent Building From David Adjaye is the New Eye Above ManhattanSaturday 15 September 2018
The Recent Building From David Adjaye is the New Eye Above Manhattan ⇒ Born in 130 William Street emerges the first skyscraper of David Adjaye’s, inspired by the moulds and colours of the past of the city of Manhattan with a look into the future.
Adjaye is already known for numerous buildings like the Moscow School of Management, Francis A. Gregory Neighborhood library in Washington or even the National Museum of African American History and Culture, launched this year a new project that it is his first skyscraper. But this is not an ordinary skyscraper. As in all his projects, besides the infrastructure, the interior of the building means a lot to the architect.
This new building, a 66-storey luxury residence located at 130 William Street, emerges in the financial district of New York. Here no detail has been left out.
Adjye noted that “there was something on 130 William Street,” one of the earliest in Manhattan. Wondering the beginnings of the architecture of that street, the architect decided to build the facade of the building with the typical arches of the city. The exterior structure is covered entirely with arches, on the top of the building these are inverted with bronze details, and the electrical and mechanical installations were hidden by a metallic part connecting the building to the 14th century. The colours were not chosen randomly or simply by for the aesthetic appearance. The building was built in grey shades, in a way that the panels would change according to the natural light and shade of the city, becoming the building, as Adjaye says, in focus.
Its interior had been designed to isolate itself from the rush and confusion of its exterior: the Manhattan and New York City. Once you enter, the peace and tranquillity of being at home are the first feelings transmitted, right away with an outdoor space within arched walls. The space also has a spa, a basketball court and a space for children. David Adjaye thought about every detail of it.
Nothing had been forgotten in this space. The hallways and entrances feature a delightful mix between arches and modern decor in golden and bronze tones, spacious and refined.
Each house evokes the serene white with large arched windows with a fabulous view over the city. Each window has its brass border and some a small balcony in the same colours and parameters.
Architecture remains in space from the inside out and from the outside in. With a fully formed opinion of what the architect want for this project, the bathrooms were also coated with light grey with custom accessories designed by Adjaye, as he said – “I hope it talks about the past, but also to the future,” said Adjaye.
These luxurious homes of unparalleled refinement and peace range from $ 650,000 for a studio to $ 5.4 million for a four-bedroom apartment. This David Adjaye building is the new luxury lifestyle building, an inspiration for New York architecture.
