Located in the New York neighbourhood of NoMad (referring to its location: north of Madison Square Park) in central Manhattan and with a total height of about 245 meters, it's not surprising that these residences have impressive views. Yet it's also worth putting the interior in the spotlight, because here Gachot Studios have once again created something phenomenal.
The perfect, soothing haven for contemporary city life
After we recently wrote about the project 67 Vestry in TriBeCa, Gachot Studios already has something new in store for us. The New York design agency was asked to design the interiors of Madison House, a unique building located near Madison Square Park and the tallest residential project in the neighbourhood. The architecture was developed by Handel Architects and has a special shape, a decagonal with ten corners, which gives each residence a ‘column-less' corner window. In addition, the apartments and penthouses (from one to four bedrooms) have a ceiling height of about 3.35 meters (not counting the double-height spaces) and therefore appear very light and spacious. The undisturbed views of the skyline of the Big Apple of course also contribute to the special character of Madison House. You float above the city, as it were, simply from your living room or bedroom. What drew our attention all the more in this project was the interior design created by Gachot Studios. They took care of all 199 residences and maximised the open living plan with large expanses of natural materials (e.g. rift wood, the Greek Bianco Dolini stone and the Italian Calacatta Borghini marble). These accentuate the flow, openness and bright spaces. They also reflect the extensive use of glass in the facade. Madison House should be the perfect, soothing haven for contemporary city life. ‘The interiors are defined by beautiful materials and measured aesthetics and a careful consideration of how one lives, how space is inhabited, and how a physical space informs a lifestyle,’ says Christine Gachot, founder of the eponymous design studio. Additional facilities that make life here extra pleasant include the impressive lobby surrounded by a garden designed by renowned landscape architect Marc Sullivan, the equally beautifully landscaped roof terrace, the 22-meter swimming pool, the spa and fitness room, the children's playroom and the stylishly furnished library. We almost lack the words to describe the exclusivity and luxury of these residences and hope these images and a good alternative to help our readers dream away.
