48 Bond — a boutique condominium advances its context

New York, NY

Type: Multifamily
Theme: Asserting Place

Bond Street is one of Manhattan’s most beloved short streets. Just two blocks long, its compelling character comes from the combination of 19th century loft buildings, a historic theater, and several recent residential buildings by high-profile architects. The graphic rhythm of our 11-story, 16-unit structure is based on the fenestration of the older buildings but is decidedly modern and taut in its construction and details.

We created a granite volume with angled “bay windows” located irregularly within an otherwise strict grid, and floated that composition above a glass base. The street level windows offer a view into a long lap pool in the basement. We designed the apartment interiors, as well as the layouts of the four different types of units in the building.
