Have you dreamed of a custom-designed home in a New York City high-rise? In a joint project between Aston Martin and architect David Adjaye, five of the 242 residences at 130 William not only have been specially designed with Aston Martin styling cues, but buyers also get special-edition Aston Martin DBX vehicles.

“Aston Martin Chief Creative Officer Marek Reichman and Sir David Adjaye worked together on this project, to bring the ethos of Aston Martin’s elegant design and dedicated craftsmanship to 130 William’s custom architecture and handcrafted interiors,” Aston Martin said in announcing the project.

130 William is a 66-story structure designed by Adjaye to reflect New York’s history of masonry architecture. It has a hand-cast facade with bronze detailing as well as arched windows.

 “The 130 William Aston Martin homes have been touched in a very particular way that merges our design sensibilities,” according to Adjaye. “Together with the limited-edition SUVs that come with these units, we’ve created a truly unique signature that blends our two disciplines.”

Aston Martin DBX comes with each home

The Aston Martin homes are on the 59th and 60th floors and feature textiles and furniture from the Aston Martin Home Collection by Formitalia of Italy.

The special-edition DBX vehicles feature materials and textures that reflect those of the building’s architecture, including real stone (marble) inlays and walnut wood.
