Architect Rafael Viñoly may have hit the headlines in 2013 as the creator of London's sun ray reflecting 'Walkie Talkie' building that wreaked melted mayhem in the city's financial district, but we're expecting his 432 Park Avenue condominium, which is currently under construction in Manhattan (featured by Wallpaper* in May), to fare a whole lot better. At 1,396 ft and 96 storeys tall, the epic, luxury tower is set to be the tallest residential building in the Western Hemisphere and unparalleled in terms of its surrounding amenities.

To complement Viñoly's elegant construction, which boasts 10 sq ft windows, private elevator landings, master suites armed with dressing rooms and his-and-her bathrooms, architect Deborah Berke is charged with designing the interiors. From custom hardware and solid oak flooring to Miele-fitted kitchens and Dornbracht fixtures in the Italian statuario marble bathrooms, no detail has been overlooked.  

In this video, Berke talks us through her approach to 432 Park Avenue, which is set to complete in 2015, and the qualities that will define its interior.
