The elegant, refined interior spaces of the 145 private residences are designed by noted architect Thierry Despont. Complementing Nouvel’s innovative design, these homes offer a 21st century vision of the gracious urban living for which New York is celebrated.
Despont’s discerning eye has guided every aspect of 53W53’s finely tailored interiors. Each of the tower’s residences, which range from one-bedroom homes to duplex penthouses with private elevators, and full-floor dwellings, is imbued with the gracious proportions and attention to detail evident in all of Despont’s private home commissions. The architect’s expert touch comprises lighting designs and fully bespoke kitchens and bathrooms, as well as elegantly crafted furniture-grade mahogany doors with custom designed bronze hardware inspired by the tower’s distinctive silhouette.
Thierry Despont is the architect of choice for the most discerning residential clients in the world. The New York-based architect, designer and artist has earned a sterling reputation for sophisticated, exactingly detailed interiors that convey a sense of contemporary elegance. His warm, luxurious style is evident in some of the world's most admired private homes and in legendary hotels, such as Claridge's, the Hôtel de Crillon, The Peninsula Paris, The Carlyle, 45 Park Lane and the Ritz Paris.
