Aston Martin Has Designed Five Exclusive Homes For New York Skyscraper
Automotive manufacturer Aston Martin teamed up with Sir David Adjaye to design a collection of five exclusive homes and limited edition SUVs for five residents who will live in the British-Ghanaian architect's first New York skyscraper.
David Adjaye is responsible for the holistic vision of ‘130 william’, designing its exterior architecture, as well as all of the building’s interiors which includes 242 residences, over 20,000 square feet of amenities, and a new plaza park. The building stands approximately 800 feet tall (244 meters), and at 66 stories makes a significant impact on the Manhattan skyline. Adjaye was inspired to craft a building that embraces New York’s history of masonry architecture. Another signature feature is the silhouette of rhythmic, large-scale arched windows that draw inspiration from the lofts that once populated the area.
The five fully-furnished Aston Martin homes will be located on the 59th and 60th floors of 130 William – Adjaye's 244-metre-tall residential tower under construction in Manhattan. Each resident will also receive a limited edition, Adjaye-designed Aston Martin DBX. Each home features a private, expansive outdoor loggia spanning the entire length of residence with bespoke screens dividing the balconies into a series of distinct zones for dining and relaxing. When residents first step off the elevator, they will see interior design elements featuring Aston Martin’s signature crosshatch pattern in a bronze finish. Beneath the bronze detailing is wallpaper designed by Adjaye associates, while a bespoke smoked glass mirror created by Aston Martin design reflects the skyline view in a distinctive arched form.
Two penthouses, and three open wall homes will be adorned with classic leather seating, and beautiful touches of furniture, fabrics, and more from the Aston Martin Home Collection, and finishes decided on by Adjaye. In addition to beautiful interiors, a well-furnished terrace that offers amazing views of the city skyline makes the luxury homes even more desirable.
Many will want a residence at the 130 William Plaza Park, but the penthouses will command $11.5 million and $10.5 million, and the three loggias retail for $3.9 million, $5.9 million, and $10 million accordingly. Having access to such exclusivity, an Aston Martin DBX that references the home’s interior, and access to other luxury vehicles makes the price worth it for a real estate lover.
