33 Bond is composed of four interlocking boxes of brick, concrete, and glass.

33 Bond is a new residential building located in Downtown Brooklyn. The building's massing is broken into four interlocking components, each distinct, and the composition of all four volumes together is what gives 33 Bond its character. 

Two of the volumes start at the ground; one is made of strong vertical brick piers that rise to top of the volume, separated by infills of metal and glass that are detailed to be reminiscent of older warehouse and loft structures. The second volume invokes a more modern, industrial vocabulary, with a clean white grid and infilled with more simple metal and glass elements. The entrance to the building’s lobby exists in the seam between these two volumes, and opens onto a large oak tree that was maintained. The seam between the volumes identifies the lobby location, and leads guests and visitors into the grand space that is the lobby.

Above the base are two additional volumes, which are interlocking with the other two. One is conceived as a minimal box broken up by vertical piers; the other is a large white framed square that appears to hover over Livingston Street. These volumes open up onto a large amenity deck directly connected to a major portion of the indoor amenity spaces, creating an elevated but sheltered courtyard.

The interior spaces at 33 Bond have been crafted to be modern, warm and comfortable in order to create a sense of community and promote interaction between residents. The design is meant to evoke industrial sophistication, with authentic materials used in a direct manner.
