Aston Martin and British-Ghanaian architect Sir David Adjaye announced their collaboration on the Aston Martin New York Residences. Situated in lower Manhattan, the five exclusive fully furnished homes are located on the 59th and 60th floors of 130 William, considered to be New York’s premier new luxury residential development. The five residences include two penthouses and three loggia homes. Regarded as one of contemporary architecture’s most inventive leaders, Adjaye welcomed the opportunity to partner with the luxury automaker given the ethos of Aston Martin’s elegant design and dedicated craftsmanship. The partnership included not only designing the five homes, but each of the homes will come with a Sir David Adjaye designed 130 William Adjaye Special Edition Aston Martin DBX.
Within each home, residents are presented with a grand living and dining room, featuring furnishings, textiles, and fittings curated by Sir David Adjaye and Marek Reichman, Aston Martin’s Chief Creative Officer. The living room offers city-wide views, clean lines, and sleek furnishings from the Aston Martin Home Collection by Formitalia, with each piece made in Italy. The sofas and armchairs combine elements of leather, metal, and fabric, as well as beautiful detailing, to evoke the richly crafted and tactile qualities of Aston Martin’s automotive interiors. Each residence includes a private and expansive outdoor loggia spanning the entire length of the residence with bespoke screens dividing the balconies into a series of distinct zones for dining and relaxing.
The 130 William Adjaye Special Edition Aston Martin DBX marks the first time that Aston Martin has collaborated with an architect on the custom fit of one of their signature vehicles. Evoking the materials, textures, and atmosphere of 130 William, Adjaye worked with Aston Martin to ensure the DBX’s highly crafted interiors and custom paintwork have a strong synergy with the building’s architecture. The DBX Special Edition marks the debut of real stone accents, with Grey “Pietra D’Avola” marble inlays matched with Satin Walnut wood.
