Beautifully situated on the waterfront in Mott Haven, The Arches rise 25 stories and offer endless views of the Bronx and the Manhattan skyline. These luxury residential towers are one stop away from Manhattan and offer the rich culture of the South Bronx.
The studio’s intention was to turn the space into an elegant, modern interior. With the incorporation of wood and a natural palette in the walls, ceilings, and floors we aimed at greater spatial warmth.
For the welcoming experience, the elliptical mirror-finish ceiling feature is seen as the center part of the lobby. From the moment residents enter this breathtaking space, they will enjoy a range of amenities, including an exclusive lounge space, an on-site café, a screening room with surround sound, and more.
The library and the quiet lounge along with the business center are all designed with warm and natural elements as well. The quiet lounge features a fireplace, and the business center offers private meeting rooms in addition to workstations that overlook to a green wall.
The open café sits between the business center and kids’ room offering tenants the comfort of navigating between these spaces. Wood details distinguish the coffee station from the rest of the space which was designed in a more industrial aesthetic.
The kids’ room and the screening room display the same design approach with a twist of colors and in the application of materials. Featuring a jumbo screen with surround sound, the screening room is the perfect place to take in a movie with friends and family.
The residential hallways continue reflecting the modern design approach in the amenities while receiving an industrial look at the elevator lobby. To complement, the contrasting wood framing and black apartment doors are embellished with bespoke sconces and signage elements that create a warm ambiance in the corridors as well.
All of the 427 apartments feature interiors designed with hardwood floors and floor-to-ceiling windows and balconies for light, air, and views.
The modern-chic theme with the warmth of wood & white surfaces, define the design in the apartment interiors. The typical bathrooms also take advantage of the complementing nature between two materials: wood and oversized porcelain tiles altering in white and black—a clean and modern look for the interiors.
