Foster + Partners, collection Apartments

Foster + Partners has designed 15 loft-style apartments suitable for displaying large art collections within the luxury residential tower, which is nearing completion in Midtown Manhattan.

The apartments in the skyscraper have, in most cases, a standard layout. What Foster + Partners wanted to do instead was to design this set of larger apartments to occupy five floors of the largest base of the skyscraper. These large apartments are designed for art collectors who need space to show large collections and entertain guests.

The apartments are open-plan and range from 105 to 428 square meters, depending on whether they have one or two bedrooms. The wall-to-ceiling height is just over three meters high. Simple finishes, including exposed concrete floors, columns and walls, have been chosen to create an empty background for viewing works of art. Concrete ceilings are grooved to provide some details and discrete corners for superior lighting. The large glass surfaces offer plenty of natural light as well as a great view.

The model residence includes pieces by famous artists such as Urs Fischer, Jonas Wood, Damien Hirst and Andy Warhol. One of the rooms is particularly similar to a gallery with works of art mounted on walls or exposed on the floor.
