As we enter the spring season, many luxury condos throughout the US are taking a fresh approach to architecture and design by promoting well-being through nature.
From fresh air and natural light to water features and indoor-outdoor spaces, these condos are incorporating biophilic design principles to enhance residents’ health and happiness.
In this round-up, we’ll take a look at five luxury condos that are embracing biophilia and providing residents with a connection to the natural world.
Four Seasons One Dalton
Located in Boston, Four Seasons One Dalton is the tallest residential tower in all of New England. The building’s soft triangle shape and seamless glass façade create a unique and rounded experience for each home, providing plenty of natural light.
The design, by Pei Cobb Freed & Partners and Cambridge Seven, offers residents an unparalleled view of the city and the opportunity to connect with nature from the comfort of their own homes.
The St. Regis Residences, Boston
The St. Regis Residences, Boston is a new luxury condominium situated in the heart of Boston’s Seaport District, with residences featuring balconies or the first Air-Lux windows in the U.S.
These Swiss-designed windows have a floor-to-ceiling glass façade system with large-surface sliding windows that can be opened at the push of a button, allowing fresh outdoor air to circulate through each home.
Charlotte of the Upper West Side
Believed to be the most sustainable condominium building ever built in New York City, Charlotte of the Upper West Side is designed by BKSK Architects and engineered to meet the exacting standards of the German-based Passive House Institute.
Each of the building’s seven full-floor homes has its own state-of-the-art, Swiss-engineered energy recovery ventilation (ERV) system that delivers fresh filtered outside air to every room of the home, repeatedly exchanging stale indoor air with fresh outdoor air. The high-efficiency filtration system also purifies the incoming fresh air, removing irritants and allergens including tobacco smoke, pollen, fine dust, and pet dander.
Maverick Chelsea, designed by DXA studio, is a recently opened condominium located where Chelsea meets The Highline and Hudson Yards in New York City.
Ranging from one- to four-bedroom residences, Maverick offers interiors bathed in natural light with glass Juliet balconies that erase the boundaries between indoors and outside, providing residents with access to fresh air and sunlight. Inspired by the iconic Flower District a few blocks away, the homes feature unique design elements that connect residents with the natural world.
Located in West Palm Beach, Olara offers resort-inspired amenities, premium hospitality and service, and 275 two-to-four-bedroom plus den residences that provide residents with an inspired natural and organic living experience.
Developed by Savanna and designed by award-winning architecture firm Arquitectonica, the tower was crafted to connect residents to South Florida’s abundance of natural light and tranquillity of the ocean.
With interiors by Gabellini Sheppard Associates, the residences reflect an elegant harmony of natural elements with floor-to-ceiling windows that overlook the Intracoastal Waterway, Palm Beach Island, and Atlantic Ocean, and open up to 10-foot deep outdoor terraces to offer ample usable space and seamlessly bridge the interiors to West Palm’s balmy environment.
