13-May-2015 – New York NY – In its forty-third year, the internationally-recognized Kips Bay Decorator Show House, hosted by New York’s most prominent youth organization, the Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club, will be situated at THE ARTHUR SACHS MANSION at 58 East 66th Street in New York City’s iconic Lenox Hill neighborhood, according to Hy Haddad, president and founder of HDH Intelligent Technologies (http://www.hdhtech.com), a provider and custom installer of home electronic and integration systems located at 305 Seventh Avenue New York, NY. Haddad says that his company had a hand in the restoration of the mansion in advance of the most highly anticipated design event of the year and the Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club’s premier fundraiser, the Show House will also celebrate the non-profit’s 100 years of service to children, marking a major milestone for the acclaimed organization.
“We are pleased to have been part of the Kips Bay Decorator Show House at the stunning Arthur Sachs Mansion at 58 East 66th Street for the organization’s 100th anniversary year,” said Haddad. “The classic Manhattan mansion will be the ideal backdrop to celebrate this milestone anniversary for the organization, showcase top talent in the interior design industry and raise much-needed funds for our city’s local youth.”
Originally built for Arthur Sachs, of investment firm Goldman Sachs in 1909 by architects of the Gilded Age, Buchman & Fox, the mansion is situated amongst some of the most renowned architectural designs on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. Constructed in the Beaux-Arts style, the five-floor, 9,600 square-foot townhouse sits across from the long-time residence of Andy Warhol, now a New York City landmark.
“It was a great honor that we had the opportunity to automate this historic New York Landmark,’ Haddad said. “We installed Vantage Controls full lighting systems, Lutron motorized shades, a Siedle intercom system, and Daiken HVAC Controls.”
In addition to the installation of advanced automated systems, Haddad says that the mansion, situated between Madison and Park Avenues and just steps away from Central Park, is an impressive 20-foot-wide townhouse, which boasts a fully restored limestone façade, five original fireplaces, a roof top outdoor kitchen and living room, planted garden, and a 27-foot lap pool.
“This spring, the sought-after house invited twenty two of the world’s leading interior designers to decorate the interior before opening to the public for one month beginning on Thursday, May 14,” says Haddad. “We are so proud to have been a part of this.”
