Deborah Berke from her eponymous studio Deborah Berke Partners has designed the interior for the model residence inside 432 Park Avenue, New York

432 Park Avenue is a big deal for New York, not just because it will be the tallest residential tower in the western hemisphere upon completion, but because it adds a certain modernity to the city’s backdrop of iconic architecture. Located between 56th and 57th Streets, the 96-storey condominium tower exhibits interiors and furnishings selected by New York architect and interior designer Deborah Berke, along with a model residence by the designer.

Located over 4,082 sq-f, the residence has three bedrooms, four full bathrooms, including double master baths, a powder room and a library, and features gracious spaces that boast stunning views across the city. Thanks to the over-sized  windows that are a signature of architect Rafael Viñoly's iconic tower, the interiors are flooded with natural light, and Berke says of the space, "The palette of subtle tones and rich textures references the building's pure, refined geometry. And of course the apartments at 432 Park Avenue are all about the views, so we selected extraordinary contemporary and modern art that stands up to the dramatic 10-foot-by-10-foot windows."

Details include a 12'6" finished ceiling height, private elevator landing, gracious entrance gallery, windowed eat-in kitchen with marble breakfast bar, oak flooring, and master bathrooms featuring statuary book-matched marble floors and walls, a freestanding soaking tub and a 1,200-pound solid cubic Bianco Sivec marble countertop. Handpicked furniture adorns the space with a mixture of classic Elizabeth Easkins silk rugs, a gold leaf Yves Klein coffee table, an elegant Fortuny chandelier and other custom-designed furnishings.

Working in conjunction with the Ryan Lee Gallery – works by Willem de Kooning, Robert Mangold, Donald Sultan, Ellsworth Kelly and others are prominently displayed, befitting of a property that is the very embodiment of Park Avenue life.
