The NoMa residential building attracts a New Hudson River School of Art.

Solaria, Arc Real Estate’s luxury condominium in NoMa, just North of Manhattan in Riverdale, recently created a new penthouse model residence filled with contemporary art and sculpture from a dozen New York artists.

The newly furnished duplex 4-bedroom, 4.5-bathroom residence, covers 2,755 square feet and wraps North, West and East with majestic views of the Palisades, Hudson River and idyllic Riverdale. The model home was designed by Hunter, NY-based interior designer Charles A. Tomajko.

In addition to the residence’s contemporary style, a mix of classic, modern and antique furniture, accessories and finishes, the home houses an art collection, curated with the assistance of Benrimon Contemporary gallery. The opening invitation-only event for both the gallery exhibition and the model residence is scheduled for Wednesday, March 14, at 5pm.

“Our goal was to highlight the best features of the penthouse with custom furnishings, seamlessly integrating the wonderful artwork into the space,” said lead designer, Charles Tomajko. “Working with the Ideas Inc. design team, the artists and the gallery provided an opportunity for a high style design statement and a fascinating visual expression,” he added.

As the highest building in Riverdale, NYC’s Solaria’s floor-to-ceiling glass windows, the private rooftop terrace in the penthouse, and a separate balcony, all offer incredible vistas. Solaria was designed to the highest quality specifications, with unique finishes and amenities, from on-site parking, fitness center, concierge service, residents’ lounge and children’s play area, to a stargazing deck with a domed telescope.

The art collection at Solaria features such accomplished artists as: Trey Speegle, Simon Patterson, Changha Hwang, Charles Hadley Blanchard, Denny Dillon, Ryan Cronin, Dimitri Kozyrev, Zac Shavrick, and Christopher Mir. “Selecting the artwork for inclusion in the show involved choosing artists whose creative vision worked to enhance the design space,” said Leon Benrimon of Benrimon Contemporary. “This represents an extension of our Chelsea-based contemporary art gallery North into NoMa, and one might call it a new Hudson River School,” he added.
