Standing 805 feet tall, Madison House is the tallest residential tower in NoMad, offering panoramic, picture-perfect views. Architecturally conceived from the inside-out, with exterior design by Handel Architects and interiors by Gachot Studios, each of the 199 luxuriously appointed homes features open and airy floorplans, corner windows, at least 11-foot ceilings and nine-foot doors.
Handel Architects, the global architecture firm known for its commanding buildings including the Museum of Arts & Design and Dream Downtown Hotel, worked closely with the developers to devise Madison House’s striking architecture. The building’s exterior features an intricate yet sleek glass façade with white terra cotta boning. Inspired by some of Manhattan’s classic skyscrapers, the design is made of vertical elements that draw the eye upward, creating a dramatic signature on the skyline. White textured panels and fins clad the glass curtain wall, maximizing the light while creating a striking exterior.
“Madison House’s shimmering layers play off the neighborhood’s iconic architectural landmarks with long glass panels stretching elegantly up to form a pillared apex, an eye-catching addition to the Manhattan skyline,” said Gary Handel, Managing Partner at Handel Architects.
Through Handel Architects’ considered engineering efforts, Madison House is a decagon and features 10 corners, a rare building layout that ensures all of the homes have a column-less corner window. Coupled with Madison House’s location and height, residences start at 150 feet above grade and reveal unmatched vistas of New York City and NoMad’s most recognizable buildings, known for their iconic gold-capped rooftops.
Further enhancing the amazing views are the building’s interiors by Gachot Studios, the multidisciplinary design firm known for projects that celebrate artistry and handcrafted design details. Each home at Madison House features a warm minimalism, defined by a richness of materiality, quality of construction and vast sense of light and space. Gachot Studios maximizes the open floor plans through the use of large expanses of natural materials, including 100 percent rift wood floors, Bianco Dolmini stone from Greece and Calacatta Borghini marble from Italy. These large swaths of materials heighten the sense of flow, open space and light, and mirror the vast expanses of glass on the tower’s exterior, marrying nature with interior living. Custom kitchens anchor each home and feature a fully integrated Gaggenau appliance package, custom Italian walnut cabinetry and Calacatta Borghini marble countertops and backsplashes. The light stone hue and light wood floors contrasts with the darker floor to ceiling hand-crafted millwork further enhancing the sense of openness.
“The light and inviting interiors are a soothing retreat in the heart of New York City and provide the ideal flexible backdrop for contemporary urban life,” said Christine Gachot, Founder of Gachot Studios. “The interiors are defined by beautiful materials and measured aesthetics and a careful consideration of how one lives, how space is inhabited, and how a physical space informs a lifestyle.”
The exclusive residential amenities at Madison House begin with the building’s grand double-height granite lobby anchored by two hearths made from Calacatta Borghini. A garden, designed by landscape architect Mark Sullivan, surrounds the lobby windows to create a natural buffer between the street and the interior space. Residents will also have access to a diverse array of exclusive amenities and hotel-caliber services, with approximately 30,000 square feet of hotel-style amenities for wellness and leisure, with a 75-foot lap pool, hot tub and cold plunge pool, a spa, gym, golf simulator, children’s play room, and a wood-lined library. Residents will also be able to enjoy a landscaped rooftop garden and private lounge with chef’s kitchen and dining room for entertaining.
The fitness and social amenities spaces feature exceptionally high ceilings and start at 150 feet above grade, providing residences with an abundance of natural light and exceptional views.
