55 Hudson Yards

55 Hudson Yards

New York, NY

What we believe will become one of the new signature buildings of the new NYC, 55 Hudson Yards finds it roots in SoHo and Early Modernism with a next level functionality. With access to the No. 7 Subway and opening directly onto the new Bella Azbug Park, the commercial building features custom indoor-outdoor spaces for tenants, this natural modern aesthetic moving into the lobby. Given the dramatic triple height of the lobby, KPF created a large scale custom finish to capture the grain. Because the lobby is illuminated by natural light, the panels also needed to be extremely flat, so a honeycomb backer was employed. The result is a textured, floating ceiling that issues warmth and makes a connection with its urban and natural surroundings.
