DDG is known for using natural materials and dressing its buildings with greenery. This has been the case at a slew of its high-end residential and mixed-use projects around the city, such as 41 Bond or 345meatpacking. The firm’s latest residential building at 12 Warren in Tribeca continues in that tradition — and then some.
New York YIMBY got its hands on new renderings of the firm’s 12 Warren project, one of which shows off its very dramatic bluestone facade. To further emphasize the building’s natural vibe, greenery is planted across the exterior. Classic DDG. The bluestone continues inside the project’s residences, which are finished with a mix of natural elements.
For now, the construction site sits shrouded in canvas-covered scaffolding, keeping the design hidden from public view. At the street level, DDG is displaying photographs of the quarry from where the bluestone for the façade was gathered. 12 Warren is developed, designed, constructed and managed by DDG. The building is expected to be completed in Spring 2016.
