A PORTRAIT OF REFINED ELEGANCE
“NoHo and NoLita are the two Manhattan neighborhoods that have appreciated the most over the past several years,” said Fredrik Eklund, who will be leading sales at the building. “This is where everyone wants to be.” – Fredrik Eklund, Elliman
“NoLita has a style, rhythm and culture all it’s own and we’ve created an environment that feels contemporary and refined, but also warm and inviting.” – Lenny Kravitz
New York City-based Kravitz Design conceived of the interiors as a luxe and layered living space, drawing inspiration from an eccentric downtown vibe while weaving in notes of uptown elegance. “Music and design are very similar,” said Lenny Kravitz of Kravitz Design Inc. “You’re making something out of nothing, building on layers. In the end, you have something that makes you feel differently than before you experienced the space. This should feel natural and comfortable, and be a home that is your refuge, where you build a life and create memories.”
Rich materials, including numerous unique natural stones, textured metal, and rich oak are juxtaposed carefully throughout the building, creating spaces that feel contemporary and refined, but also warm and inviting. Kitchens feature custom, matte-white lacquer cabinetry with integrated Gaggenau appliances. Bathrooms offer a multisensory experience with walls and floors dressed in Titanium Travertine and French Vanilla marble. Powder rooms feature a custom Elm floating vanity and illuminated nickel-framed mirror. Amenities include a 24-hour concierge, automated parking, fully equipped gym, rooftop terrace and private courtyard.
75 Kenmare is the first new construction condominium in New York City to feature full interior design by Kravitz Design, Lenny Kravitz’s namesake firm. The building’s exterior design is by renowned New York architect Andre Kikoski of Andre Kikoski Architect (AKA), winner of the AIA Institute Honor Award for his work for the Guggenheim Museum. DHA Capital, along with partners AMS Acquisitions and First Atlantic Real Estate, first acquired 75 Kenmare in June 2015 and purchased the property with an existing parking garage on the site. Once complete, the building will house a limited collection of 38 one- to four-bedroom homes ranging in price from approximately $1.7 million to over $12 million.
Knit into the contextual fabric of NoLita, with its richly textured façade and artful interiors, 75 Kenmare retains the authenticity of downtown life while incorporating a new sense of refined elegance. Kikoski’s exterior is comprised of unique vertical panels of cast concrete and elegantly proportioned windows in chamfered metal frames that introduce a contemporary style to the neighborhood’s architectural landmarks. New York City-based Kravitz Design conceived of the interiors as a luxe and layered living space, drawing inspiration from an eccentric downtown vibe while weaving in notes of uptown elegance.
The vision was to create a striking contemporary statement to compliment the other modern architecture being built in the neighborhood and set a standard for design in Nolita. This design took exploration to the next level, making sure everything was considered but nothing taken for granted. The design solutions transform the literal building block of Manhattan exchanging brick for concrete in a new way. Through a richly imagined textured skin, to the well-proportioned oversized windows, to the warm tones and rich patinas of the concrete, the building looks timeless and elegant, yet effortlessly contemporary.
“As a team, Kravitz Design lives and breathes the downtown mindset, and is an active part of its cultural history, while each of Kikoski’s signature buildings, art spaces and private residences blurs the boundary between art and architecture.” -Dan Hollander
