Located in Manhattan’s exclusive NOHO district, 41 Bond Street is an 8-story residential building that occupies a prime spot in the historic neighborhood. Working on an interdisciplinary team led by DDG, Future Green Studio provided landscape design and installation for the building façade, entrance canopy, a rear garden, a patio garden, extensive green roof and several landscaped terraces. Each of these pieces was carefully articulated to be seamlessly interwoven with the architecture rather than functioning as separate, disparate elements. The building’s façade is handcrafted in native Pennsylvania bluestone, echoing the materiality of the historic neighborhood. Planters integrated into the stone of the windows were inspired by a trip to the quarry where pioneering vegetation had taken root in striated layers of rock. The entrance is punctuated by a planted canopy; masses of finely textured perennials spill over the sides, softening the clean, hard lines of the steel. A combination of soft textures and vibrant greens in the planting palette creates a brilliant contrast against the strong horizontal architectural lines of the native stone. At the ground floor, a planted loggia screens the interior of the building from passers-by. The loggia takes on the form of a grotto with stacked stone walls inter-panted with grasses and groundcovers. The vertical plane is activated by large vines climbing stainless steel cables. On the private terraces, a mix of wild yet sophisticated flowers and grasses was selected with a focus on texture, form and seasonality, in order to provide a dynamic view from within that maintains interest year-round. At the penthouse, extensive areas of green roof reduce energy consumption, mitigate storm-water runoff and provide a verdant retreat for residents.
