Calvin Klein Creates a Christmas Dollhouse

Back to Articles

Every year around this time, tourists and locals flock to the streets of Manhattan for the ultimate in free entertainment – checking out the elaborate holiday window displays at NYC’s many upscale department stores and boutiques.  And while one of this year’s top offerings can hardly be described as “Christmas-y” at all, it offers an incredible array of seasonal delights for fans of architecture and modern design.  Curious?  Then hurry over to the Calvin Klein Collection flagship store on the Upper East Side, at the intersection of Madison Avenue and 60th Street, for a look at this year’s Christmas Dollhouse.

The “Madison Avenue (Doll)House” is nothing like the Barbie Dream House you may have found under your tree as a child.  This ultra-modern abode is actually a work of architectural art, designed by Joshua Prince-Ramus of REX Architecture PC, engineered by Magnusson Klemencic Associates and built by Situ Studio.   The house seems to float above a New York City street scene, is of course eco-friendly (with a greenroof), and is entirely furnished with tiny little replicas of Calvin Klein furniture, apparel and homeware.  The display will remain in the window through January 5, so if you’re in New York City, be sure to check it out.
