Kravitz Design, the design firm of musical icon Lenny Kravitz, has designed the interiors at 75 Kenmare, a luxury residential building in Manhattan’s NoLita neighborhood that just launched sales. The Andre Kikoski–designed building, developed by DHA Capital, marks Kravitz Design’s first full interior design commission.
Merging downtown eccentricity with uptown elegance, Kravitz conceived of 75 Kenmare’s interiors as luxe, layered living spaces. “Music and design are very similar,” Kravitz said. “You’re making something out of nothing, building on layers. In the end, you have something that makes you feel differently than before you experienced the space.”
A rich materials palette, ranging from textured metal and natural stone to warm oak, pervades the building’s 38 units. Kitchens feature custom, matte-white lacquer cabinetry with integrated Gaggenau appliances. In the bathrooms, Titanium Travertine and French Vanilla marble offer a sensory experience.
Andre Kikoski is responsible for 75 Kenmare's architecture. Introducing a contemporary aesthetic to NoLita's historic vernacular, Kikoski incorporated vertical cast concrete panels and chamfered metal window frames into the exterior.
Kravitz Design has recently expanded its global footprint with larger scale projects including a 47-story residential tower in Miami, a Parisian nightclub, a collection of architectural hardware for Rocky Mountain Hardware, and a line of ceramic tiles for Lea Ceramiche.
