Baccarat Hotel & Residences

New York, New York USA

Project Overview / Detail

Baccarat Hotel & Residences has outstanding views of Manhattan landmarks, including Central Park and the Empire State Building.   

The tower was designed as a destination that would embody the elegance and artistry of Baccarat—the luxury crystal brand founded by King Louis XV of France more than 250 years ago. The architecture manifests the concept of an elegant crystalline box as a showcase for the Baccarat brand’s “distinct art of gracious living.” To express the faceted, shimmering design and to create an illusion of depth on the façade and contrast between the metal and glass elements employed, the design-build team clad the 50-story tower in a glimmering skin of Reynobond® 4mm FR Composite Material finished in a custom jet-black metallic paint coating.
