Tower New York, NY
The LVMH building rises as a shimmering geometric tower above the din of 57th Street in Manhattan. Hillier teamed with Pritzker Prize-winning architect Christian de Portzamparc on this 106,000 square-foot project. Mr. de Portzamparc designed the building. Hillier served as the coordinating architect and provided all interior design.
Inside the tower are offices for executives at Guerlain, Louis Vuitton, Givenchy and several other divisions of the luxury goods conglomerate. Corporate offices, nine showrooms and the “magic room”—a multipurpose room used for a host of events including fashion shows, product launches and large meetings—are arranged on 24 stories. Each company has its own brand and identity and Hillier’s design ensures each corporate office is an extension of its brand.
The inspiration for the interiors was surprisingly simple: Paris and its streetlined boutiques. In this interpretation of the Paris avenues, the “shops” are turned vertically. Instead of placing the high-end fashion stores side-by-side, the boutiques are stacked. The elevator serves as the street, revealing each fashion company’s “boutique” as its doors part.
The 24-floor white glass mirrored tower with its oblique line is as dramatic as the fashion companies within its walls. Inside are offices for executives at Guerlain, Louis Vuitton, Givenchy and other divisions of the luxury goods conglomerate. Each company has its own brand and Hillier’s interior designs ensure that each corporate office is an extension of its brand.
