New York’s 40 Bond Earns National Design Award

The Society of American Registered Architects (SARA) recently announced that 40 Bond in New York has been awarded a 2009 Professional Design Award. The award recipients will be honored at SARA’s 2009 National Conference in October. 

Handel Architects worked with Herzog & de Meuron (design architect) as architect of record to realize their first condominium project in the United States. The 40 Bond project was designed on behalf of the Ian Schrager Company, and according to Handel Architects, is an ultra high-end residential building that reinterprets the traditional cast iron buildings of NoHo in a radical new way with a grid of bell-shaped, bottle-green glass mullions by the Spanish glass company Cricursa. The base features a 140-foot-long, cast aluminum gate inspired by New York City street graffiti. W&W Glass LLC in New York was the contract glazier.

Handel Architects’ design team for 40 Bond included: Gary Handel, AIA, Frank Fusaro, AIA, Asheshh Saheba, RA, LEED AP, Ade Herkarisma, Yunhee Jeong, Mehmet Noyan, RA, and Katarina A. Jordens.
