15 Hudson Yards: the largest real estate project in US history lifestyle
15 Hudson Yards is the most ambitious real estate project developed so far in the United States. An 88-storey skyscraper with magnificent architecture that overlooks the Hudson River and the New York skyline. We have gone inside one of its penthouses by Kelly Behun.
Located on the West Side of Manhattan, 15 Hudson Yards is a skyscraper with exciting views and high-end interiors with endless luxuries. A dream design in New York developed by the Rockwell Group and designed by Diller Scofidio + Renfro as the main architects. The views are a priority and the minimalist structure of the tower enhances the views of the Hudson River and the Manhattan skyline.
But the viewer is not just fascinated by the exterior. The interiors of the common areas are done with exclusive materials and signature furnishings, and furthermore, there is a design for each apartment, strengthened and created by renowned interior designers.
Kelly Behun is the interior designer who has overseen the interior design in one of the penthouses, which takes up an area of 316 square metres, and it has four rooms, four bathrooms and two dressing rooms. With a leisurely aesthetic in pastel tones, along with a decor in which velvety and metallic textures are combined with zoomorphic sculptural pieces of furniture, the stylist creates a peaceful atmosphere in which the views become a part of the interior itself through its panoramic large windows.
For greater luxury and comfort, the building has a lifestyle director, who offers consultation services about wine and event planning, among others. As well as that, there are some 40.000 square metres for common services, including a private spa, a gym, dining rooms, rest areas, conference rooms and a pet spa.
With 800 million dollars in contracts already signed, and 60% of the building already sold, it is currently under construction and it belongs to the Hudson Yards urban development project.
