Ingrao Inc have been shortlisted for Luxury Residence – Global Award in The International Design & Architecture Awards 2020.
The Hudson Yards mega-development has long been hailed as a new destination for dining, shopping, working, and living. Its tallest residential tower, 35 Hudson Yards, seeks to put it all under one roof: The David Childs and Skidmore Owings Merrill-designed building and interior architecture and design by Tony Ingrao of Ingrao Inc features ground-floor retail, Class-A office space, an Equinox Club and Spa, the world’s first Equinox Hotel, and two restaurants. On top of it all, 137 apartments will start on the 53rd floor to make the most of the light and views. The residences maximise space for tenants, with two- to six-bedroom homes ranging in size from 1,500 to 10,000 square feet.
Tony Ingrao designed the lobby taking inspiration from David Child’s organic architecture, offering an unexpected arrival experience with a nautilus shaped ceiling light installation that seamlessly guides residents through the lobby to the elevator corridor where they encounter a contemporary bespoke commissioned tapestry that rises from floor to ceiling. The selection of exotic woods, stones, and metals creates an inviting and luxurious atmosphere complimented with collectable furniture, art, and lighting pieces that further elevate the most luxurious building in Hudson Yards and a truly unique private residence in New York City.
The Developer of the residences, Related, asked for the most luxe finishes available – from the rarest wood and stone to the highest quality hardware. The design directive was to attract an international clientele that travels and is accustomed to luxury which is translated into top-of-the-line spaces that are anything but generic. For the model apartment, Ingrao inc. felt it was best to keep things neutral and add interest through texture. They did not want the palette to be too cold, so everything has a slightly warm tint and part of the experience being in a Hudson Yards 35 apartments is not to interfere with the extraordinary views.
The design of the 35 Hudson Yards kitchens takes inspiration from the concept of nature and lightness. This translated into every aspect of the design using unique materials such as exquisite Eucalyptus cabinets and Opal Ice stone counter tops. The bronze trim details echo the materials used on the exterior facade of the building further elevating the kitchen experience into a calm and contemporary space for the residence. The surprise result, common areas and stylish, lavish model units that look like people live in. The common design scheme throughout the building commands attention in an understated way.
New Yorkers are always seeking more light, kitchen storage, and closet space. However, one could not ask for more at 35 Hudson Yards. “The design directive was to attract an international clientele that travels and is accustomed to luxury, so we selected top-of-the-line items that are anything but generic.” Common areas and stylish, lavish model units that look like people actually live in them.
