Explore Pierre Yovanovitch and Bjarke Ingels’s New Megawatt Collaboration

October 4th, 2019

In 2016, a warped pyramid of a residential tower entered the New York City skyline. With VIA, located in Manhattan on West 57th at the Hudson River, AD100 architect Bjarke Ingels made his first residential mark on the city. Now his second, also with a twisted design, is under construction in Chelsea: the XI a travertine-and-bronze-clad two-tower complex, one 36 stories tall, the other 26 stories tall, that will also include the first United States Six Senses Hotels Resorts Spas. At a topping off preview in March, visitors marveled over the stunning views from floor 36, the top of the tallest tower. Now, this and the four floors below are being shaped into nine similarly fabulous penthouses, courtesy of another AD100 designer, Pierre Yovanovitch.
