145 President
8 January 2018

If you want something done right, do it yourself; or so goes the motto, which several emerging New York architecture practices have recently been taking to heart. Skipping developer collaborations altogether, an increasing number of practices have decided to bravely go it alone, streamlining design and production in a single, integrated approach. Avery Hall has launched its first in-house designed and built project. Construction on 145 President is just coming off the ground, promising to deliver a touch of hygge in Brooklyn for 2018.

One Hudson Yards

Andre Kikoski, is the Manhattan-based architect who conceived the tower’s lavish interiors. ‘For us, luxury is emotional, not transactional, so we were thrilled when the developer gave us the freedom to work with craftspeople around the world to produce never before seen materials that convey sophisticated, contemporary grandeur,’ says Kikoski, who designed two models apartments in the building: one with three bedrooms for a family, in soft botanical tones and textures, a palette inspired by the flora and materials of High Line below, and the other a one bedroom with city skyline and river vistas, conceived for a sophisticated bachelor and entrepreneur. ’The look is fresh and unconstrained,’ he says. And suitably seductive.
