Prestigious Projects

selected for opulent New York Huys project Piet Boon, the award winning Dutch designer, who joined forces with Fetim Group to create an exclusive collection of wood floor designs for their Solidfloor™ range, has selected one of the washed oaks for the Huys apartments. This high-profile project with 58 luxurious and elegant apartments on 404 Park Avenue South in the booming NoMad district in New York is collaboration between Kroonenberg Groep, internationally renowned designer Piet Boon and landscape architect Piet Oudolf, who was recently awarded the prestigious Prince Bernhard Culture Award. ‘We have selected this robust, washed oak floor for the pilot apartment, because it ties in beautifully with the solid character of the building. It has a beautiful, used and worn look and feel’, the designer explains. The Huys apartments, in one of the most beautiful locations in The Big Apple, are a former office building from 1917, built in the typical neoclassical style of the time. The building has been transformed to luxurious apartments befitting a cosmopolitan lifestyle. Quality and attention to detail, as well as a healthy dose of the typical Dutch

down-to-earth mentality, wilfulness, functionality and durability, all define the key features of the apartments. From the outset, the project was quite a sensation among the spoiled and designminded New York public and was talk of the town in various media, among others in the famous design magazine Dwell. It is therefore no wonder that practically all apartments in this unique project were sold in no time. The name “Huys” refers to the Stadt Huys, New York City’s first city hall that was built in 1642 by the entrepreneurial Dutch-born Willem Kieft. Almost four centuries down the line it’s once again the steadfast Dutch have taken this extraordinary step in this city.
