Developed and designed by DDG Partners, the 521-foot building features swooping arches at the base, midsection, and crown, and is clad with nearly 600,000 silvery Kolumba bricks handmade in Denmark. Enhancing the monotonous trend of skyscrapers sheathed in glass, the Upper East Side has sprouted an eye-catching new tower inspired by visionary Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí. A luxury home was developed with this mindset in mind! Ready to have demystified the greatest and most ambitious details when it comes to imposing interior design projects, this DDG Partners design, truly enhances the best period of modern architecture brought for the inside of a contemporary apartment.
The 521-foot building features swooping arches at the base, midsection, and crown, and is clad with nearly 600,000 silvery Kolumba bricks handmade in Denmark. Dubbed 180 East 88th Street, the interior design project also features an arresting lobby that recalls the interiors found in Barcelona’s famed Casa Mila, which Gaudí completed in 1912.
“I see this apartment as an updated version of the classic Upper East Side home. It’s a little familiar albeit with a modern twist.” says designer Hadas Dembo about this luxury home.
Inside this luxury home, every single modern design detail is balanced, the three-bedroom unit boasts unique features like elliptical entry galleries, bespoke millwork, and custom cabinetry by Molteni&C. For the art and art furniture itself, Dembo went with choice works by Ed Moses, Dan Flavin, and Walter Darby Bannard, while furnishings were sourced from R & Company and include luxury design pieces by Joaquim Tenreiro, Carlo Hauner, Greta Magnusson Grossman, and Bruno Munari.
The interior designer, who had formal training as an editorial photo director, likens the glamorous finished product to a box of macarons:
“It’s light and fluffy with just the right amount of sweet.”
