40 Bond Street

Client Ian Schrager Company
Location New York City, NY
Status Completed in 2007

40 Bond Street visually pops from the neighboring townhouses via a grid of bottle-green glass bell-shaped mullions.

Handel Architects worked with Herzog & de Meuron to design this new 11-story luxury residential project at 40 Bond Street in Manhattan’s NoHo neighborhood. The project features twenty-seven 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.

On the upper floors, the design approximates its cast iron neighborhood by couching floor-to-ceiling windows in a grid of bottle-green glass bell-shaped mullions. Though the entire facade appears to be a monolithic panel, it’s layered as a rain screen over window wall.
The base features a 140-foot-long, cast aluminum gate inspired by New York City street graffiti. The graffiti motif continues into the seamless, white Corian lobby, which leads to the 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.
