One Hundred Barclay by Timothy Godbold | DPAGES



the late 1920s, One Hundred Barclay originally served as Manhattan’s New York Telephone Company’s headquarters. Today, the famed Art Deco tower is celebrated as one of the most significant examples of New York City skyscraper design all, while housing some of Tribeca’s most covetable new lofts. The recently converted residences begin about 200 feet above street level – combining the expanse of early 20th century living with all the luxuries of the 21st. The result is Grade A New York real estate and a design opportunity fashion-designer-turned-interior-designer Timothy Godbold was thrilled to take up…

bringing one of the show apartments to life, Godbold drew inspiration from the graphic paintings of Senegalese artist Babacar M’Bodj Niang and the pop / graffiti-like art of Keith Haring. As an added layer of interest, the designer strove to push the needle forward, “I was looking for what’s next,” Godbold explained. “I wanted to stay away from the midcentury ‘50s-‘60s look, and see what the ‘70s and ‘80s could bring to the space.”

aesthetic – part vibey lounge, crisp graphics, and earthy primitive – is achieved through a meticulous balance of material, form, and color. The overall palette was kept to a minimum with a masculine mix of white, black, and cognac, while nuance and warmth was brought in through a series of richly textural additions ranging from plush rugs to rustic french dining chairs to the cerused wood detailing.

master bedroom, a ceruse wood Art Deco style cupboard speaks the building’s past while bringing warm contrast to the apartment’s more sleek features, including the living room’s chrome-clad Kappa Slipper chairs and dining room’s Daikon chandelier. The overall effect is decidedly unexpected, but with eclecticism in his heart and a past that inspires him forward – Timothy Godbold is designing just the sort of future where we want to live.
