As Isay Weinfeld’s first New York building, Jardim, nears completion, the Brazilian architect and designer reveals the interiors that he has conceived for the luxury residential project.

Bringing the warmth of Brazil to the midst of West Chelsea, Weinfeld’s brick and concrete design – layered with latticed wood screens – is set in a sultry oasis of terraced multi-level gardens and landscaped with evergreens, flowering trees and native shrubs. Overlooking the High Line, the two 11-storey towers feature 36 residences in total, ranging from one to four bedrooms.

The holistic design of the development continues seamlessly from exterior to interior, where floor to ceiling windows stretch across the walls, opening the interiors up to light and smoked oak floors by Parisian brand Oscar One. Grooved lighter oak accents on the walls contribute to the warm and sensual environment.

‘To my thinking, architecture and interior design are one thing, so they follow common guidelines and converge to common goals,’ says Weinfeld, who carefully selected materials and designs in line with the Jardim ethos.

Muted colours, variations of wood and soft leather upholstery all contribute to the sensual atmosphere. The living rooms feature a Sorensen upholstered sofa in sand-coloured Belgian linen, flanked by a low back leather and walnut wood armchair by IB Kofod-Larsen and low back lounge chairs by BassamFellows.

Moving fluidly through the open-plan space to the dining room, a gold pendant light hangs above Zeitraum's 'Morph' dining chairs in fabric, leather and walnut.

Jardim will be completed later this year. In the meantime, Weinfeld continues to work on designing interiors for the new Four Seasons restaurant in New York.
