The interiors of ‘130 william’, the 800 foot-tall (244 meter) residential skyscraper designed by sir david adjaye, have been revealed for the first time. unveiled in the photos below, the building’s interiors and model residences have also been designed by adjaye and his firm, adjaye associates. ‘in defining the design for 130 william I sought to celebrate new york city’s heritage of masonry architecture, referencing the historical architecture once pervasive upon one of the city’s earliest streets,’ says the architect. ‘however, and more importantly, 130 william has been crafted to focus on the new possibilities of urban, vertical living.’
designed by adjaye associates in collaboration with local architect hill west, 130 william comprises 66 stories that contain a total of 242 residences and an expansive collection of amenities. the project will also incorporate a new public plaza park, designed by adjaye, as well as retail space located within the building’s base. with the first residents already moving in ahead of the project’s full completion in fall 2021, the new photos offer a look at what life inside the building will be like.
each of the 242 residences, which range in size from studios to four bedroom homes, have airy interiors framed by oversized bronze arched windows. adjaye custom designed all fixtures and hardware throughout the residences — including the faucets, showerheads, accessories, and door handles — in a burnished bronze finish. meanwhile, wide-plank white oak flooring extends throughout each home.
‘our collaboration with david adjaye is a true partnership in every sense of the word,’ says scott j. avram, senior vice president of development, lightstone — the development firm behind the project. ‘his vision, along with lightstone’s expertise and ingenuity, has achieved a new benchmark for residential living. the interiors of the new model residences exemplify thoughtful design, attention to detail, and use of the finest materials sourced from around the world. these homes provide a calm sanctuary for those with discerning taste and the response from our new residents has been overwhelmingly positive.’
130 william offers an expansive collection of lifestyle and wellness amenities that are spread over more than 20,000 square feet (1,858 square meters). the suite of amenities includes: a health club with full spa, infinity-edge spa pool, cold and hot plunge pools, dry sauna, and massage rooms, as well as a state-of-the-art fitness center with cool-down terrace, yoga studio, and basketball court.
residents can enjoy a private IMAX movie theater, golf simulator, resident lounge, club and game room, chef’s catering kitchen with a private dining area, children’s activity center, pet spa, outdoor terraces, and private rooftop observation deck located at the top of the building. see designboom’s previous coverage of the project, from its topping out in may 2019 to the unveiling of five exclusive homes designed in collaboration with aston martin.
