This property is a new build, in what is considered to be one of the most iconic structures in New York City. Located in the heart of Manhattan, between 56th and 57th street, 432 Park Avenue is the tallest residential tower in the western hemisphere. At 332 square metres, the penthouse comprises three bedrooms, plus three and a half bathrooms.
Rising to almost 427 metres, architect Rafael Vinoly choreographed the interior scene with four-metre high ceilings and vast, three-metre square windows that offer peerless views of New York City. These high ceilings and vast floorspace showcase an extensive art collection, including sculptures by British artists Sir Tony Cragg and Richard Deacon, paintings by Idris Khan and a neon installation by Welsh conceptual artist Cerith Wyn Evans.
Pieces of such visual impact and artistic value called for a deliberate yet audacious hand at display. The interior design studio entrusted with the task was the renowned London-based firm Nebihe Cihan, who originated a minimalist concept in which the works of art are integrated throughout the interior spaces.
Say the designers: ‘The client, an international businessman, is an avid art collector and this apartment is not his primary home. However, it was imperative that the spaces be comfortable – akin to a luxurious hotel – as he uses this primarily as a base for business trips.’
