Installation of terracotta facade panels continues at Selldorf Architects' 10 Bond. The 7-story, 11-unit condo in the NoHo neighborhood has much of its signature terracotta facade installed, with only a few bays on the south and east facade left to receive panels. Selldorf's design for the panels includes concave elements on the vertical piers and scalloped horizontal panels at the spandrels below the windows. Due to their materiality and shaping, the panels evoke an artisanal quality that allows the building to fit in amongst the older neighborhood stock and the more recent high profile condos on Bond Street.
Also under construction on the same block, Morris Adjmi Architect's 372 Lafayette Street, a rental building that abuts the north party wall of 10 Bond. Façade installation has been ongoing for quite some time, with a few peeks of brick behind the construction scaffolding.
