Luxury penthouses are every person’s dream. Reaching 1,396 feet (425 metres), 432 Park Avenue is currently the tallest residential building in the world and the second-tallest building in the US, after One World Trade Center in Lower Manhattan. In this background Italian brand Molteni&C has outfitted a penthouse in there, adding built-in wooden window seats to frame the views of Central Park.
Molteni&C designer Matteo Nunziati oversaw the transformation of the 8,256-square-foot (767-square-metre) penthouse in the super-skinny Midtown Manhattan tower. The makeover involves simple finishes, built-in furniture and designs from the brand, having everything luxury penthouses should have.
The expansive square-shaped windows that give the 96-storey-high 432 Park Avenue its iconic gridded appearance are retrofitted with upholstered benches in the living room, dining area and a bedroom, just like luxury penthouses normally feature.
Encasing the windows is eucalyptus wood, which enhances their distinct square shape and matches the tone of the dark wooden flooring that Nunziati designed for the residence. White walls, spacious rooms and ample natural light characterise the rest of the interiors. Finishes balance a palette of dark and pale tones, with pops of mint green and rusty red offered by furniture, being worth to be seen between luxury penthouses.
A sitting area is anchored by a long, dark Breeze sofa by Nunziati set atop a soft green rug. Two cream-coloured Allure armchairs and a Trevi coffee table, also by Nunziata, encircle a round red ottoman.
Every 12 floors of the structure are left open, acting as a hollow area for the wind to pass through. Supporting the structure is a reinforced concrete core, which houses elevator shafts and mechanical services.
Viñoly’s residential tower comprises 104 residential units, with New York firm Deborah Berke Partners as the overall interior designer.
Residents also have access to two gyms, a lap pool, a library, a meeting room, a cinema, a children’s area and a wine shop, having the best of what luxury penthouses can offer.
