Four Seasons Private Residences Designed by Modern-Day Icons

By working with some of the world’s most renowned architects and designers, Four Seasons infuses excellence into every private residence.

Whether building on tradition or creating something entirely new and innovative, good design leaves a legacy. That legacy can be seen in the skylines that define our cities, or it can be felt in the intimate spaces where we spend our days, our weeks, our years – either way, the impact is palpable and lasting.

By working with some of the most celebrated architects and designers in the world, Four Seasons Private Residences invite you to be a part of a city’s design legacy while creating one of your own. A striking architectural masterpiece in Boston’s Back Bay neighbourhood dreamed up by legendary architect Henry N. Cobb. Design duo Yabu Pushelberg’s modern re-expression of traditional Indian design in Mumbai’s vibrant Worli district. An ingenious interlocking structure designed by Hamiltons International set along the Chao Phraya River in Bangkok. A sanctuary in the heart of Dubai created by visionary architect Sir David Chipperfield. These designers all created something singular and spectacular. Through exceptional design and unparalleled service, Four Seasons can help you create a legacy of your own at the residences in these iconic destinations.

A Henry N. Cobb–designed landmark in Boston

Rising 61 storeys above Boston’s Back Bay neighbourhood, Four Seasons Private Residences One Dalton Street, Boston, is the tallest residential tower – and third tallest building – in the city. Designed by Henry N. Cobb of Pei Cobb Freed & Partners, one of the world’s most distinguished architects, in partnership with CambridgeSeven, the curved, all-glass structure sets itself apart as an architectural masterpiece without precedent.

“The building’s transition into its ‘soft triangle’ shape is eventful but seamless,” said Cobb, who designed the tower before his death in 2020. “It deliberately occurs just as the tower begins to rise above its immediate neighbours.” Serving as a link between the historic homes of Back Bay and the rows of skyscrapers that make up the High Spine, One Dalton’s modern facade fully engages with its urban surroundings without neglecting its roots: each of the tower’s residential units features operable bay windows in every room, an homage to the 19th-century brownstones that line the streets below.

At 742 feet, One Dalton is just 48 feet shy of the city’s tallest structure, 200 Clarendon – originally known as the John Hancock Tower – but they share a common ancestor. Both buildings were designed by Cobb – the perfect monuments to his distinguished career.

Inside, acclaimed interior designer Thierry Despont brings his signature fusion of classicism and modernism to the iconic lobby and public areas of the residences, as well as the private club.

“In addition to beautiful private residences and exceptional Four Seasons service, luxury living is also about bringing the unexpected, the new,” says Eric Jausseran, Residential Lifestyle Manager at Four Seasons Private Residences One Dalton Street, Boston. “It’s about delivering unrivalled experiences to a discerning audience.” Jausseran and his team go above and beyond to create extraordinary experiences for every resident that connect them to the city in unique and memorable ways. “We want to offer original experiences, inspire new emotions and create memories for them and their families.”

Riverside living by Jean-Michel Gathy and BAMO in Bangkok

Those who live at Four Seasons Private Residences Bangkok at Chao Phraya River may call an innovative, modern building home, but their address is an ancient one. Set along the path of Bangkok’s first paved road, the residences are the epicentre of a mixed-use complex that spans 14 serene acres along the banks of the Chao Phraya River, also known as the River of Kings.

Led by award-winning architectural and interior designer Jean-Michel Gathy from Denniston, who also designed the nearby Four Seasons Hotel Bangkok at Chao Phraya River, and created in collaboration with architects from Hamiltons International as well as interior design firm BAMO, the building itself features a distinct interlocking shape that ensures each residence on every floor is a corner unit with unobstructed waterfront views. Some of the most sought-after units, however, are the exclusive three-bedroom residences. Offering 191 square metres (2,056 square feet) to 237 square metres (2,551 square feet) of serene living space, these spacious residences are bathed in natural light and feature meticulously curated furnishings by B&B Italia.

For even more incredible city views, residents can head up to the private Four Seasons Club, located on the 64th to 66th floors. These three floors serve as a gathering place for owners, residents and their guests, featuring a Sky Lounge and Bar, a private dining room, a screening room, an art studio, a teen lounge, a wine room, a fitness centre and an infinity-edge outdoor pool that seems to float above the city on the 66th floor terrace. Looking to feel more grounded? Four Seasons residents also have exclusive access to a private Riverfront Lounge right by the river’s edge.

Complementing these unique design features and amenities is the intuitive, personalized service that Four Seasons is known for. In Bangkok, the dedicated residential team gets to know each resident, learning their favourite breakfast order and how they take their coffee, and even arranging for around-the-clock perks – like keeping the private screening room open in the middle of the night for a resident who wanted to watch a highly anticipated game without disturbing his family.

Yabu Pushelberg’s modern take on tradition in Mumbai

Located in Mumbai’s buzzing Worli district, with the Willingdon Golf Course, the Mahalaxmi Racecourse and the Bandra-Worli Sea Link all nearby, Four Seasons Private Residences Mumbai is a family-friendly urban oasis. Designed by award-winning architecture firm Gensler with interiors by celebrated design duo Yabu Pushelberg, these single-floor residences and multi-level duplexes were made with legacy in mind.

“We started the project by imagining who the owner would be and gaining an understanding of the target clientele. This allowed us to get more personal in the way we designed the interiors,” Glenn Pushelberg explained to Architectural Digest. “We created a metaphor around an heirloom jewel passed through successive generations and designed each apartment to be a modern interpretation of that.”

Yabu Pushelberg’s vision embraces a particularly sophisticated approach to luxury, one that also embraces the design legacy of the region. Traditional Vastu Shastra – Sanskrit for the “science of architecture” – finds a modern reinterpretation through Gensler’s planning of the homes, done in collaboration with Yabu Pushelberg. Throughout the property’s public spaces and residences, your attention is drawn not only to the impeccable array of finishes and objects – imagine richly hued heirloom gemstones, swathes of wood and book-matched exotic stone – but also the spatial scale. The directional alignments and shapes incorporated into the design of the building (two key elements of Vastu Shastra) also help create a spiritual ambience that promotes well-being and prosperity.

The crown jewels of this residential property are the penthouses. Designed with multigenerational living in mind, these 6,500-square-foot penthouses boast some of the largest floor areas and room sizes in Mumbai, with customizable five- to six-bedroom layouts available, each featuring plenty of room for each family member to spread out and enjoy panoramic views of the city.

Sir David Chipperfield reimagines the skyline in Dubai

Claiming a prime position on Gate Avenue with striking views towards the iconic Burj Khalifa and neighbouring Four Seasons Hotel Dubai International Financial Centre, Four Seasons Private Residences Dubai at DIFC will be part urban gathering place, part sanctuary. Housed within a complex of four aligned towers rising from a raised plinth, their linear facades line up to face the surrounding city, while the inward curves embrace a pedestrian-only garden oasis, complete with shady green spaces to gather and chic restaurants and cafes at which to meet with friends.

This rare reimagining of the DIFC skyline has been designed by acclaimed British architect Sir David Chipperfield as part of an innovative mixed-use project. Complementing the architecture will be interiors by Tihany Design that help further instil a sense of sanctuary and luxury. By using light to transform the space into one filled with wonder and delight, Tihany Design is pulling inspiration from the work of Dutch designer Sabine Marcelis.

“Imagine yourself entering this space, greeted by a warm glow and a symphony of reflections,” says a spokesperson from Tihany Design. “As you move through the space, the light dances around you, creating ever-changing patterns and effects. You feel yourself surrounded by beauty, a space where light and reflection come together to create a truly magical feeling, the feeling of being at home.”

No matter where you live, your home is an extension of you. The design of your home will shape the look and feel of the legacy you create, and Four Seasons is here to help provide the heart.
