AN ARCHITECTURAL ACCORD IS REALIZED.
The XI. One square block. Two unprecedented icons stretch skyward, nestled between the Hudson River and the High Line. Parallels are drawn—from the yin & yang duality of the sister residences to the unique balance between convention and avant garde, timeless travertine and dynamic technology. At these crossroads, where a storied New York neighborhood meets trails yet to be blazed, Bjarke Ingels’ feat of engineering connects with an international paragon of luxury, Six Senses hotel and spa, and the world’s foremost interior designers, Gabellini Sheppard and Gilles & Boissier. Combining revelation, idealism, inventive genius, and refinement, a new architectural accord is realized.
Air and light, water and steel, man and nature—confounding rigidity in favor of a dynamic celebration of the vivid city that surrounds them. With residential and hotel experiences that elevate the art of well-being, treating mind and body to the extraordinary, bringing the city and the self together in perfect harmony. The introduction of Six Senses hotel and spa as they break ground for the first time in the U.S., brings a philosophy of connection to life in the form of Bjarke Ingels’ premiere architectural triumph.
BJARKE INGELS GROUP
More than a mere modernist or Starchitect, Bjarke Ingels is a prophetic innovator who is moving the field of architecture forward in every respect. His visually arresting design style is equally noteworthy for its forward-thinking attitude toward technology, cost and use of resources.
Even prior to founding design collective BIG, the Bjarke Ingels Group, this shockingly pragmatic futurist has distinguished himself by envisioning and realizing his vision of urbanism, as manifested in a range of projects that have revolutionized metropolitan landscapes here and abroad. From corporate campuses for Google and Lego, to the TIRPIC Bunkers and Audemars Piguet Museum and Cross Towers, Ingels has radically transformed how people experience and inhabit architecture all over the world.
