iKitchen: an Introduction to the Future of Exclusive Innovative Interiors

The innovation of modern technology revolutionized the 21 st century, redefining functionality and simplicity in everyday life. The constant development of motorized intelligence in contemporary kitchens serves to improve the style, quality and way of life for all generations. The dramatic development of the industry introduces new mechanisms that serve to utilize and optimize kitchen spaces. Features of the future include upgrades for kitchen cabinet finishes, mechanisms and appliances. Modern kitchen cabinets now possess unique open/close capabilities, which incorporate: fold, swing, lift-up, slide, pocket/flipper and push-touch systems. LED lights have been added as a groundbreaking feature and can be manipulated to illuminate a kitchen in warm, or cold temperature tones.

The industrialization of kitchens proves that size does not matter. Any kitchen space, big or small, can be optimized for complete and total use. Just like a smart phone, a kitchen can be organized in a compact space with a wide variety of applications made convenient and unique to a certain style.

Kitchens are the centralized and universal gathering place for family and friends. This public area within your private home is the epitome of conversation, milestones and, of course, a delicious meal. The visual aesthetic and functionality of such a sophisticated design creates the perfect atmosphere for every type of family.

Nowadays, families are not the only exclusive admirers of kitchen spaces. Contemporary kitchens are no longer defined by the values or image of a traditional household. Independent individuals rely on kitchen space for tranquility and organization to pacify their chaotic lives. For example, market powerhouses such as CopatlifeElmar CucineEuroMobili and Scavolini continue to develop home-technologies to enhance the lives of every single New Yorker. Companies like these are experts in the utilization of every single corner within an apartment. The creative minds of Elmar Cucine designed a convertible table that is hidden under the surface of a kitchen countertop, or island. The strategy behind creating a convertible table is to maximize efficiency. Having extra space, where it is often limited, creates endless opportunities to prepare and indulge in delicious, continental feasts.

Through observation and research, the progressive intellectuals of Copatlife determined the problem behind short-term kitchen deterioration. The company recognized that the finishes of modern kitchens should not only be beautiful, but also sustainable. Copatlife developed a heat and scratch resistant finish that truly redefines the definition of “multi-use.” The quality and smart featurettes differentiate this countertop finish from any other invented before. A contemporary innovation on a classic tradition creates the perfect atmosphere for every family, every couple, and every bachelor. The modern-day smart kitchen is equipped with appliances that make life easy, simple and organized. Kitchens continue to improve and transform into places of comfort and functionality. The evolution of such a traditional value is epic and will only advance as time goes on.

The purpose of innovating kitchen designs, finishes and mechanisms is to create simplicity in a modern home. Everyone has a dream kitchen that they wish to have. The one obstacle standing in the way of most people is that the process of kitchen decisions seems daunting. This moment of turning your dream into a reality should not be stressful.

The Revival of Neglected Neighborhoods

One of the most important aspects of being in the architecture and design industry is constantly remaining educated on upcoming developments. It is meticulous work to research project information on websites like the Real Deal, or BidClerk. However, this is the only way to stay involved and relevant in this industry. Recently, there has been a huge influx of developments in overlooked neighborhoods, such as Harlem, the Bronx and Brooklyn. To specify, there has been a major expansion of proposals for multi-unit, residential high-rise buildings.

Bringing attention to Harlem is absolutely necessary. The neighborhood has never been known for developing communities of luxury, high-rise buildings. However, a numerous amount of developers saw Harlem as an opportunity to expand the Manhattan skyline. The creation of these new residences are in coherence to affordable housing making it possible for any income families to live in a safe space. The rise of these new ‘super-tall’ skyscrapers will positively promote security for residents who are often seen as vulnerable in such a neighborhood.

A particularly interesting development is set to premier at 20 West 116th Street, which will feature an 11-story, 28-unit apartment building. The new residence is special because it will be built on top of an existing, historical church. Harlem is an extremely historical and religious part of New York, and conserving the originality of the district is the key factor in creating successful developments. This is a popular trend amongst developments in Harlem, where residential units are being built on top of sacred spaces. Family is a divinity in itself and creating a holy home is the purpose of this landmark turnaround. The hospitality industry is also starting to expand to West 126th Street. Harlem’s infamous Victoria Theater was purchased by the Empire State Development Corporation to transform into a Renaissance Hotel by Mariott. The high-rise will feature approximately 200 rental units, half of which will be residential apartments offered at a below-market price. By creating an environment in which tourists are welcome, it will be interesting to see how Harlem transforms. It is such a historical part of New York that is often overlooked and branded as a place of crime, horror and violence. It is wonderful to see how real estate developers, architects and designers “re-discovered” Harlem and are working on building a better future for the hidden city gem.

Architecture and Interior Design firm duo, Hill West Architects and Whitehall Interiors NYC, can be confidently credited for Harlem’s revival. The partner firms started the construction craze in Harlem when they began working on the North Park Tower located at 1399 Park Avenue. The luxury building will soon rise to 23-stories with 72 exquisite units. The new construction is being branded as “legendary,” due to the blending of new technology and modern interiors with the historical neighborhood of Harlem. Developed by a private real estate investment firm called Heritage, 1399 Park Avenue will promote traditional family values in a modern setting. Early renderings of the apartment kitchens show traditional-style cabinetry with contemporary finishes, built to create a functional environment. It can be defined as a modern elegance that is not typically encouraged in present-day residences.

A big part of New York that is often overlooked is Brooklyn. Brooklyn is commonly misconceived as a community of brick pre-war buildings, old technology & appliances and eastern European immigrants. However, by early 2019, New York City’s sister metropolis will break free from all inferior stereotypes. New Yorkers will eventually desire to live, explore and thrive in Brooklyn.

A development that has made a lot of noise in the world of architecture, design and real estate, is located at 9 Dekalb Avenue. Upon completion, the building will be absolutely epic and totally unique to the Brooklyn skyline. Rising at 73-stories, and offering over 500 residential units, 9 Dekalb will be the tallest tower in Brooklyn once it is completed. The developer for this massive project is JDS Developers. The company partnered with Chetrit Group, and chose ShoP Architects as their lead architects. Interiors for this building are still an enigma and are to be determined. Who knows? Maybe the Exclusive Home Interiors team will get a chance to take on the new supertall and provide unique kitchen cabinets, bathroom vanities, doors, closets, lighting and more.

Lastly, emphasizing a triplet tower development in the South Bronx is imperative to the topic of overlooked and forgotten neighborhoods. The development is so large that it holds two official addresses: 2401 Third Avenue and 101 Lincoln Avenue. Real estate investment firms, Chetrit Group and Somerset Partners, are collaborating to construct these new residences, and have nominated the Hill West team as the lead architects. Each building will rise to 25-stories, and have 430 units available to lease. The entire project will hold about 1,300 residential units and have a 175-car garage. The interiors have also not yet been specified for this building, but renderings show sleek, sophisticated, modern kitchen cabinets, as well as bathroom vanities made with Italian marble and quartz. Once again, the priority of interior designers and architects is to create a stunning home, while utilizing every corner of a small space.

New York City is an extremely populated island, and it continues to expand with new residences for people to choose from. Every person deserves to live in a comfortable space that ensures aesthetic, practicality and performance. Every citizen should have the right to have the latest appliances and technologies equipped in their homes. Stainless steel microwaves, ovens and wine cabinets are a must nowadays. In New York neighborhoods such as Midtown East/West, the Financial District, TriBeca, SoHo, Chelsea, Upper East/West Side, etc., these normal and necessary appliances add cost to the already expensive and barely affordable real estate rates.

Engineering new construction in neighborhoods like Harlem, the Bronx and areas of Brooklyn, allows homes to be leased under the affordable housing plan. This gives every person of every socioeconomic dimension to live comfortably and glamorously. Exclusive Home Interiors supports this movement completely and is happy to be working a couple of firms that are solely focused on “forgotten neighborhoods” right now. It will be exciting to see how the skyline of Harlem, the Bronx and Brooklyn changes.

To conclude, our team at Exclusive has been doing extensive research on these projects and is confident in several factors of future developments: First, all kitchen cabinetry for luxury, high-rise residential buildings in New York will be custom-Italian made by the year 2020. Second, Italian-imported rock, such as marble, granite and quartz, will be the only stone used to accentuate bathroom vanities.

Finally, the next innovation of interior design is Italian doors. Companies like Agoprofil, for example, can create one door with two different side finishes. This is a blessing to our industry because doors can now fit the interior of the room that they are enclosing. Many designers and architects are not familiar with this development yet. But no fear, Exclusive Home Interiors is here to introduce, educate and collaborate with all industry professionals to make life just a little easier for every New Yorker.
