Handel Architects worked with Herzog & de Meuron to design a new 11-story luxury residential project at 40 Bond Street in Manhattan's NoHo neighborhood.

The project features 23 condominiums, five townhouses, and a penthouse in a radical reinterpretation of the traditional cast iron building. Duplex units modeled on townhouses occupy the first two floors, and more typical condo units fill out the eight upper floors, topped by a penthouse. The design of the facade reflects this division in program. On the upper floors, the design approximates its cast iron neighbors by couching floor-to-ceiling windows in a grid of bottle-green glass with bell-shaped mullions. Though the entire facade appears to be a monolithic panel, it is composed of multiple layers: a rain screen over a window wall.

The base features a 140-foot-long, cast aluminum gate inspired by New York City street graffiti. Richly detailed, the gates form a filigree pattern providing privacy and security for residents of the street-level townhouses.

The graffiti motif continues into the seamless, white Corian lobby, which leads to a private residents' garden at the rear of the building. Each of the triplex townhouses has a private entrance off Bond Street, as well as private front and back gardens.
