Great Jones Alley

New York, New York

Nestled deep in lower Manhattan’s NoHo district, this historic building retrofit highlights the quality and materials of its original light industrial past while reimaging it as a homey residential retreat. The historic cobblestone alleyway has been stripped down to its beautiful raw stone materials. This shared walkway and drive is terminated with a 24 foot tall corten steel wall treillage, supporting a wall of Ivy and Climbing Hydrangea vines. This 2 story garden feature blends the ground level arrival space with the 2nd floor common and private roof gardens. Vertical wall gardens introduce a welcomed, yet complimentary contrast to the gritty industrial context. Recycled water cascades through tiered fountain troughs and collect at the alley’s floor – infusing visual and audible elements of nature into a multi-sensory experience. These distinct design characteristics provide the development’s core marketing promotional features and establish the property’s eternal identity.
