Beauty Meets Functionality

Madison House, the tallest residential project in the NoMad neighbourhood of Manhattan, sets a new standard for residential living with striking interiors by Gachot

Gachot, the multidisciplinary design firm known for projects that celebrate artistry and handcrafted design details, designed the interiors of each of the 199 luxuriously appointed homes and oversized amenities spaces at Madison House. Gachot’s signature sense of comfortable modernity and a service based - approach to interior design is on display throughout the project.

Luxury in design is defined by more than beautiful materials and measured aesthetics, it is a careful and time-worn consideration of how one lives, how space is inhabited, and how a physical space informs a lifestyle. Madison House interiors are defined by a richness of materiality, quality of construction, and vast sense of light and space. Large planes of luxurious natural materials mirror the vast expanses of glass that let in light from the city outside, marrying nature with interior living. Warm, inviting minimalist forms provide a backdrop for contemporary urban life.

Gachot’s understated warm modernist, hand-crafted millwork is heavily featured throughout both common spaces and the residential units. Gachot designed the generously-scaled amenity spaces with a decidedly residential sensibility which is similar in design and aesthetic to the penthouse apartments. Warm modernist touches such as expansive dark wood panelling and luxurious plaster walls abound. In the residents’ lounge, a double height stone mantel wall recalls those in the penthouse units.

“The light and inviting interiors at Madison House are a soothing retreat in the heart of New York City and provide the ideal flexible backdrop for contemporary urban life,” said Christine Gachot, Founder of Gachot Studios. “The interiors are defined by beautiful materials and measured aesthetics and a careful consideration of how one lives, how space is inhabited, and how a physical space informs a lifestyle.”

The amenities at Madison House include approximately 30,000 square feet of hotel-style amenities for wellness and leisure and begin with a grand double-height granite lobby anchored by two hearths made from Calacatta Borghini. All of the fitness and social amenities spaces feature exceptionally high ceilings and start at 150 feet above grade, providing residences with an abundance of natural light and exceptional views.

Christine adds: "We designed the amenities spaces at Madison House the same way we would design a private member's club. There's a balance between classic sophistication, hospitable comfort, and undeniably modern architecture. When it comes to design, our most crucial consideration is how the space will make someone feel at ease - at home.”

The double-height private lounge features oak-plank flooring throughout and a wood-panelled kitchen and pantry. In the private dining suite, a full working kitchen is rendered in custom wood millwork and large swaths of marble. The conference room walls are lined in floor to ceiling upholstered panelling with walnut trim. The billiards room overlooks the gym; which is defined by wood and mirror panelling.

Each of the homes at Madison House features open and airy floorplans, corner windows, at least 11-foot ceilings and nine-foot doors. The light stone hue and light wood floors contrasts with the darker floor to ceiling hand-crafted millwork further enhancing the sense of openness.

Handel Architects was responsible for Madison House's striking architecture. Inspired by some of Manhattan’s classic skyscrapers, the design is made of vertical elements that draw the eye upward, creating a dramatic signature on the skyline.

Christine describes: “To take advantage of Madison House’s extraordinary height and showcase the great views, we employed generous planes of rich, natural materials and hand-applied finishes. This lush materiality brings warmth and context to the building's monumental scale.”

Madison House is located in NoMad, a storied Manhattan neighbourhood cherished for its history, authenticity, and vibrant cultural attractions, and is steps away from New York City’s thriving design scene anchored by the showrooms of storied furniture brands like B&B Italia, DDC and Molteni&Co.
