The Penthouse at Gansevoort Meatpacking NYC gets a design update
Created by Italian furniture brand Poliform, the Penthouse is characterised by sophisticated (shoppable) designs and bespoke elements throughout
Italian furniture company Poliform has joined forces with New York’s Gansevoort Meatpacking hotel for a makeover of its Penthouse. Created in collaboration with general manager Kevin Woodard and the Poliform design team, the 1,700 sq ft duplex Penthouse features 30 ft floor-to-ceiling windows with views of the Hudson river, and a sophisticated design throughout.
‘I’ve long admired the warm, modern aesthetic of the Poliform brand and incorporated several pieces in my personal home design. So, when renovating our Penthouse and guest rooms they were a natural partner and source of inspiration,’ says Michael Achenbaum, Co-Owner and President of Gansevoort Hotel.
The Manhattan Penthouse features some of Poliform’s most successful pieces. On the first floor, a striking lounge area is defined by a fireplace flanked by bookcases, and pieces by French designer Jean Marie Massaud, such as the minimal Mondrian sofa and coffee table, and his Stanford lounge armchairs. Several bespoke elements throughout are characterised by dark wood and black marble, their somber tones enhanced with carpets in serene jewel hues and artworks adorning the space. Wardrobes and cabinets were created by Poliform with typical attention to detail, and further touches in the space include a Sonance surround sound system, a wet bar and a functional kitchen.
Each element of the Penthouse is shoppable, and can be adapted to suit a customer’s needs. ‘Working with [Poliform’s] expert team to gather some of their key pieces, along with a few we created just for Gansevoort Meatpacking, has been an exciting and rewarding process,’ continues Achenbaum. ‘We’re proud to now be home to one of the most impressively designed penthouses in Manhattan.’ §
