Featured Project: SkyGarage by Selldorf Architects
Known as “SkyGarage”, this fairly recent addition to the New York City skyline designed by Annabelle Selldorf and her eponymous firm allows apartment owners, such as celebrity couple Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman, Domenico Dolce (Dolce & Gabbana) and Jamie Drake (we’ll be featuring Jamie and his interiors here soon) to drive right up to their own apartment. An amazing feat of engineering and space planning, it’s a unique property unlike any other in the competitive luxury residential market. As Ms. Selldorf was quoted, “I see the building as pure and postindustrial, with its modern windows. There are no spatial acrobatics inside, so it is traditional in that sense.” I’m fortunate to have worked with Selldorf and her team on previous apartment renovations and interiors, but this ground up structure is in a different league.
Recently, Tyler over at Plastolux featured unit 6N, one of the beautifully decorated apartments that was listed for sale on 1stdibs. Here, we get a look at some of the the great interiors and views from the building. I’m a big fan of the architecture as well as the interiors and furniture choices. It’s worth taking a look.
