Hong Kong's high property prices are one of the two in the world, and every transaction price in the luxury housing market breaks everyone's imagination. For example, MOUNT NICHOLSON, a super luxury mansion in the city on the top of the hill, sold its No. 2 bungalow for nearly HK$1.4 billion this year, at a price of HK$151,785 per square foot. Regardless of the transaction price and the price per square foot, it reached a new high for Asian estate-style houses.
In New York, the super luxury mansion 423 Park Avenue is located in the most luxurious part of Manhattan. It was completed in 2015 and is 426 meters high. It enjoys the reputation of the world's tallest residential building and the second tallest building in New York City. It overlooks Central Park and Manhattan. It's MOUNT NICHOLSON from Hong Kong.
A buyer from China bought three units of 11,906 square feet on the 92nd and 93rd floors for US$91 million, or about HK$700 million. And this time we will take a look at one of the units on the 92nd floor, designed by New York designer Kelly Behun, with the goal of creating a warm family space.
The apartment contains many large square windows, allowing residents to enjoy the view of Manhattan. However, the designer said that these square windows would restrict the residents' view outside the window, and the color of the interior would also affect the residents' vision of the landscape. Therefore, the designer used different colors and carefully selected furniture to bring out this unattainable landscape.
In addition, the apartment is located in a very high position, looking out from the window, as if living in the clouds. Therefore, the designer brings a sense of down-to-earth and peace of mind to the residents by using the darkest floor.
The living room in this corner is a personal living space. The bright light shines on a wall-mounted artwork inlaid with gold thread, which refreshes people's spirits. The plaster artwork of artist Yolande Batteau completely covers the fireplace, which highlights the modernity.
The master suite in the other corner is full of colors. The simple design concept makes people feel warm, bright and relaxed. At the head of the bed, the designer was influenced by the work of the minimalist artist Frank Stella, applied geometric design graphics, and customized a 6-meter-long cushion. Bring an extraordinary embellishment to the simple room.
The two rooms are decorated in completely different main colors: one uses bright tones and the other uses a darker color-dark blue. The two rooms bring out two different feelings, forming a strong contrast.
Finally, if you can soak in the bathtub in front of the window and overlook the beautiful scenery of New York, it is also a great enjoyment in life.
