There is a palpable sense of luxury as this brand new residential building on the corner of Manhattan’s NoLita neighbourhood opens its doors to us. The project, called 75 Kenmare, looks every inch of modern and chic that is the Upper East Side. It’s an address that holds the power to make you pause. While Kikoski tackled the building envelope, Renaissance Man Lenny Kravitz, Lenny Kravitz’s namesake firm – Kravitz Design brings the soul into the interior of residences.
The enviable address is a showcase of elements that define modern living. Built by DHA Capital – the developers and masterminds behind 75 Kenmare chose Manhattan-based architect Andre Kikoski to work on the façade of this posh project. The Seven-Storied, 38-Unit Condominium features grooved sandblasted precast concrete panels. As for the apartments themselves, they are one- to four-bedrooms, many of which have unique floor plans.
When asked on the central design theme of the space, the Grammy-award musician says, “My vision for 75 Kenmare centres on a layered environment, drawing inspiration from the eccentric downtown vibe while integrating elegant materials, such as unique natural stones, bonded metal, and aged oak.” The warm neighbourhood reflects on the classy appeal of the residential spaces. “NoLita has a style, rhythm and culture all its own, and we’ve created an environment that feels contemporary and refined, but also warm and inviting,” he adds.͟
Rich materials, includes numerous unique natural stones, textured metal, and rich oak are juxtaposed carefully throughout the building — creating spaces that are contemporary and refined, but also warm and inviting. While the kitchens feature custom, matte-white lacquer cabinetry with integrated Gaggenau appliances, the bathrooms offer a multisensory experience with walls and floors dressed in Titanium Travertine and French Vanilla marble. Make your way to the boudoir featuring a custom-made Elm floating vanity adorned with illuminated nickel-framed mirror. The cream-coloured concrete façade and the pared-down classical elegance creates an address which holds the promise of creating an address that one comes home to.
