„40 Bond Street, Noho New York"
The apartment complex "40 Bond" in NoHo New York is hitting the headlines before it's even been built. Not to mention that the Swiss star architect duo Herzog and de Meuron are planning the 27 unit luxury class complex. They have envisioned an 11-story façade made entirely of cast glass with a greenish Coke-bottle hue, extravagent light installations from Jasper Morrison as well as open fireplaces and 24 hour a day hotel service for the 22 loft style dwellings and 5 town houses with private gardens. " Our Mafi Vulcano floor in Oak and Nero will not only be in all the rooms and on all stairs, but will be used in the kitchen and on the bathroom doors and walls as well. "A model apartment has already been built at 275 Lafayette St. with 3,400 square ft. of Mafi Vulcano Oak. Prospective buyers who can afford the highest prices in New York City can come for viewings by appointment only". Says Philippe S. Pezet, Export and Managing Partner of Mafi USA, Inc. The ground breaking ceremony already took place in January this year for Schragers "40 Bond" project and completion is planned for spring 2007. Seven of the lifestyle apartments have already found owners. For more information on Ian Schragers Project "40 Bond",
