New York Contemporary
GRADE Architecture and Interiors
Thomas Hickey and Edward Yedid
The first monograph on GRADE New York, an architecture and design studio dedicated to creating artistically curated environments in a cutting-edge contemporary setting.
Architect Thomas Hickey and interior designer Edward Yedid partnered to establish GRADE New York as a unique practice where architecture and interiors merge into a seamless continuum. Within their refined and beautifully proportioned spaces, a meticulously curated selection of furnishings, contemporary art, and exquisite objects create a luxurious and personal environment for their clients. As Hickey says, “Our firm was formed on the premise that architecture and interior design go hand in hand, informing each other to make a coherent whole.”
The Contemporary Urban Home presents eight apartments in the most glamorous condominium buildings in Manhattan, including a penthouse at Place 57, a pied-à-terre at 551 West 21st Street by Norman Foster, and 565 Broome Street by Renzo Piano. A special feature is an in-depth look at Edward Yedid’s own duplex on Madison Avenue, where the principles of structuring and curating the space have created a sleek but warm and inviting home for his family.
