Master Architecture

New York-based development firm Sumaida + Khurana has commissioned Noë & Associates to create the brand for their company and 152 Elizabeth Street: Tadao Ando’s first residential condominium project outside of Japan. Sumaida + Khurana is a New York-based development firm focused on creating timeless benchmarks in premium real estate through a dedication to master architects, craftspeople and design. Noë & Associates will be project partners on all future developments.

The project on Kenmare and Elizabeth Street will be his first residential condominium project in New York. Ando is responsible for a number of the world’s most celebrated buildings including the Chichu Art Museum in Naoshima, Azuma House in Osaka, Pulitzer Foundation for the Arts building in St. Louis, Teatro Armani in Milan and the François Pinault Collection’s Palazzo Grassi and Punta della Dogana in Venice. He has also designed homes for fashion luminaries Tom Ford and Karl Lagerfeld and collaborated with the world’s leading contemporary artists including Ellsworth Kelly, Richard Serra, James Turrell and Damien Hirst. The self-taught architect is the only person to have won all four major international architecture prizes: the Carlsberg Architectural Prize, the Pritzker Architecture Prize, the Praemium Imperiale and the Kyoto Prize.
