New York, USA

    Usage: 95 apartments, 210 hotel suites (Park Hyatt), Service and leisure facilities

    Architecture: Christian de Portzamparc, Thomas Juul-Hansen (Interior Design)

    A new generation of extremely slender skyscrapers is altering the New York skyline. At 306 metres, One57 is the seventh tallest building in the Big Apple. Although it's right in the heart of the city, the location near Central Park provides a leafy outlook – and a landmark for the walkers in the park.

    Interior design by the Danish designer Thomas Juul-Hansen. Inspired by French modern style, natural surfaces are predominant. The whole interior design of the apartments was created exclusively for One57 – including the kitchens.
