Designed by Deborah Berke & Partners Architects LLP, 48 Bond Street is located in New York, United States. An application for the extension of the Noho Historic District in New York has been unanimously approved by the Landmarks Preservation committee. 56 buildings will now be included in the area which will have severe building restrictions placed upon it to preserve the historical status. The Noho Historic District was first designated in 1999 after 3 year of campaigning by long-standing locals who were keen to preserve to area. Far from rejecting any modern designs, however, Noho is fast becoming an area known for its architectural elegance, not least due to the scrutiny of the locals.
The residents are notoriously hard to please but one recent design within the district has been met by approval. A Deborah Berke design for residencies was recently completed in the area and has been welcomed by the locals. Built on one of Manhattan’s few remaining cobbled streets, 48 Bond Street has brought a sleek and stylish facade to the area using slate and glass reaching to the same heights as the adjacent buildings. The residences have similarly well balanced interiors. Walnut floors and bay windows combine with recessed architectural lighting and concealed home offices to accommodate a modern-classical lifestyle. This effort has paid off with both the acceptance of the locals and the sale of all of the available apartments.
