Dutch designer Piet Boon’s first large scale New York City project, Huys, is a luxury residential building located in Manhattan’s burgeoning NoMad neighborhood on Park Avenue South.
Developed by Dutch developers the Kroonenberg Groep, one of the largest developers in the Netherlands, Huys (pronounced ‘house’) is a 58 unit renovation of a historic 1917 neoclassical building with a facade that has been completed transformed.
The project brings together several Dutch designers including Boon, lighting designer Frederik Molenschot, as well as Piet Oudolf who’s done the landscape architecture for the High Line and Hella Jongerius who’s created a hand-painted Flower Pyramid vase for the lobby.
A site specific sculpture by Amsterdam-based sculptural lighting designer Molenschot will be featured in the lobby. Molenschot has also designed a series of hand crafted brass numbers that will be featured outside each of Huys’ residences, as well as large brass numbers to mark each of the building’s floors.
