Few new build condominiums have attracted the attention of Nouvel, situated at 100 Eleventh Avenue. Designed by visionary architect Jean Nouvel, it is one of the most striking new developments to appear on the Manhattan skyline in the last two decades. But it has much more to offer than just good looks- providing residents with incomparable living spaces and world beating amenities. The 23-story landmark features over 1,650 different windowpanes, in what is one of the most complex architectural feats ever undertaken. The curved wall of colorless glass panes has been designed to capture the light differently both throughout the day and across the changing seasons, leading to an ever changing blanket of shades and textures. Nouvel’s love of light is carried over into the design of the residences, all of which feature wall-to-ceiling windows and floorings covered with transparent gloss to boost the effects of sunlight.
Open plan kitchens are designed to flow into the living areas and utilize steel, glass, terrazzo and custom lighting alongside Viking appliances to create a truly unique space. Bathrooms are no less ambitious, featuring Corian surfaces, Kohler soaking tubs, and bespoke touch-sensitive fixtures by Jado.
The amenities on offer are world-class and include a fitness centre complete with Cybex equipment, a 70-foot heated swimming pool, sauna, wet bar, private screening room, relaxation lounge, valet parking and concierge service provided by Luxury Attaché. The building is also home to one of the city’s most captivating gardens. Constructed from a blend of glass, steel and concrete, it features soaring trees and a six-story high hanging garden.
