Luxury automotive manufacturer, Aston Martin, visionary architect Sir David Adjaye and Lightstone, one of the largest privately held real estate companies in the United States today revealed a unique collaboration to create a collection of five exclusive homes, available for purchase at 130 William, New York City’s premier new luxury residential development. The owners of these five beautiful homes will also be able to travel in style in a Sir David Adjaye designed 130 William Adjaye Special Edition Aston Martin DBX.
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 out of one of their signature vehicles. The DBX is the first SUV to be created by the luxury British manufacturer and just like the marque’s sports cars, it captures the very spirit of Aston Martin as a beautiful, hand-built, yet technologically advanced car. 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. Aston Martin’s traditional hand-stitched leather includes Parliament Green trim and steering wheel from Aston Martin’s in-house customisation service, “Q by Aston Martin”, matching the walls of the simulator room option, and deep, multi-layered paintwork in a Q by Aston Martin bespoke colour inspired by 130 William’s exterior, complete with subtle hints of green. The interior includes carved solid walnut trim, with Q by Aston Martin Parliament Green leatherwork and details in bronze, black anodized aluminium and real stone.
The five fully furnished exclusive homes are located on the 59th and 60th floors of 130 William and feature a unique and highly distinctive design identity. Each home features a private, expansive outdoor loggia spanning the entire length of residence and is set behind the unique rhythms of the hand cast building façade, with bespoke screens dividing the balconies into a series of distinct zones for dining and relaxing. The residences are fully furnished, with unique visual elements and accessories, hand-crafted materials and textiles and furniture from the acclaimed Aston Martin Home Collection by the Italian manufacturer Formitalia.
Within each home, residents are presented with a grand living and dining room, featuring furnishings, textiles and fittings curated by Marek Reichman and Sir David Adjaye. The living room offers city-wide views, clean lines and sleek furnishings from the Aston Martin Home Collection by Formitalia, with every 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.
Buyers have the option of customising one of the rooms, in the two- and three-bedroom homes, into a racing simulator, an office and library space, or a bedroom. The simulator room is the perfect choice for true automotive aficionados and dedicated enthusiasts. Aston Martin Design collaborated with Curv Racing Simulators, a new British technology company founded by Darren Turner, a three-time class winner of the 24 Hours of Le Mans for Aston Martin and an industry-leading expert in racing simulation technology. Turner collaborated with Aston Martin Design to create the ultimate in luxury home racing simulators.
The five homes include two penthouses, priced at $11,500,000 for PH60A, $10,500,000 for PH60B, and three loggia residences L59A, L59B and L59C, priced from $3,985,000, $5,985,000 and $10,000,000. That’s what I call one expensive options list!
