Across the street from BKSK’s widely commended 25 Bond, a new modern landmark is taking shape. What was a long-dormant 14-story superstructure originally intended to be a hotel is being remade into a more contextually sensitive and art-inspired residential loft building. In a neighborhood with a deep artistic legacy, the building reveals art and architecture in tandem. Fly Mosca, a 13-foot-long sculpture created by Federico Uribe, and made of salvaged jet skis and boats will be mounted on a wall near the roof, while the lobby features an installation of cascading gold crowns by Roy Nachum.
This building-as-art concept continues inside, where BKSK led the interior design of the building’s six exclusive residences. Dwellings are composed of serene, gallery-like spaces, designed specifically to protect and display over-sized pieces of art. An airy sculptural staircase is suspended within the double-height main room. Kitchens are disguised as a volume within a volume, and secondary spaces, such as vestibules and powder rooms, are carved from the building’s core and rendered as inky-black volumes, heightening the contrast between inside and out.

"The Bond Street trees were famous. There were two in front of each house, and in 1857 they were so tall and dense that from the roadway only the stoops of the houses could be seen. Tuckerman, in his biography of Dr. Francis, says that the lamps, gleaming amid the leaves, reminded one of Paris."
