The d’Orsay

November 27, 2016

The D’Orsay is a jewel-like, intimate 11-story, 21-unit condominium building located at the crossroads of the West Village, the Meatpacking District, the Highline, and Chelsea. Hill West poured attention into each detail of the fine brickwork of the facade and intricate glass and metal work. A mixture of classic ornament and industrial touches allow this design to walk the line between edgy and highly sophisticated. The designers worked with elegant round patterns in the metalwork at the entry doors and more industrial elements at the residence windows, such as the horizontal mullions inspired by warehouse-like expanses of glass. This mixed palette befits the varied neighborhood.

Building amenities include a rooftop garden, a spa with a plunging pool, steam and treatment rooms, a fitness center and a drawing room. The residences range from 1 to 4 bedrooms and are designed with direct elevator access. Many have private terraces and all are fitted with the luxurious residential details that Hill West is known for.

The Seymour

November 27, 2016

The Seymour is a brick 12-story, 67-unit residential condominium in Chelsea inspired by the many industrial buildings in the neighborhood.

Detailed custom brick work was used to add a layer of richness to the industrial language. A soldier course of brick defines oversized window bays that span two floors to create floor-to-ceiling mullioned windows in the residences. Deco trim in black metal at the entry and at the windows on the first and second floors define the base of the building with custom details. There are several floor-through units, several units that have private terraces with both front and rear views, and a ninth floor penthouse level.

This building boasts the luxury details that have made it a neighborhood favorite.

Chelsea 29

November 27, 2016

Chelsea 29 is a 21-story, 95-unit residential rental building with both retail and parking at West 29th Street, west of 7th Avenue. The building’s form is an updated take on the setback, “wedding cake” aesthetic of the pre-war commercial high-rises that line the blocks of the Garment District. The facade has an elegant vertical emphasis and is organized into three bays of windows separated by vertical limestone piers that start at the base and rise to the top through a series of setbacks and terraces. Each pier is capped by a decorative T-shaped metal finial in a dark metal finish. A series of thinner mullions clad in a matching metal rise between the limestone piers to create each of the three window bays. Dark metal grills and limestone bars make up the spandrels between the windows.

A series of setbacks between the 13th and 16th floors create landscaped terraces fronted by glass balustrades. The building meets the street with two lower floors that embrace an aesthetic of polished and textured metal surfaces along with glass. The entrance sits underneath a glass canopy suspended by two steel rods and surrounded by metal mesh. The resulting composition is not an imitation of the past, but rather a modern reinterpretation of the district’s historic spirit that recalls a time when commercial high-rises shared their urban space with light manufacturing facilities.
